Course Description

Join actor and director Julian Lopez-Morillas for a study of Shakespeare’s final four plays—Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest.  

These masterpieces show Shakespeare at the height of his creativity and reveal his maturity not just as a dramatist but as a husband and father.  

Known collectively as “the Romances”, these four plays marked the invention of a new genre of tragicomedy, and they explore themes of forgiveness and reconciliation set in atmospheres of wonder.  Here’s an opportunity to delve into works of uncommon beauty.  Mr. Lopez-Morillas will enhance the adventure with his own readings and enactments of scenes from these magical creations.
