The Harwood Museum of Art of UNM, in partnership with Opus Arte and The Globe Theater, presents William Shakespeare's "As You Like It," recorded at London's Globe Theater, on Friday, May 27, at 7 p.m. This screening in high definition and surround sound will be shown in the Harwood's new Arthur Bell Auditorium.
Tickets are $12 for Harwood Museum Alliance members, $15 nonmembers, $8 children 5-12, available in the Harwood Museum Store.
This new production of one of Shakespeare's most popular romantic comedies is directed by Thea Sharrock. A feisty but feminine Rosalind played by Naomi Frederick, in love with the endearingly naïve Orlando (Jack Laskey), uses her disguise as Ganymede to counsel him playfully in the art of wooing. Distraction is provided by Dominic Rowan as Touchstone and Tim McMullan as Jaques.
Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. Her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy, she leaves with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to seek out her father in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love and wooing.
