Picture house entertainment, who broadcasted the Royal Shakespeare Company productions Love’s Labour’s Won and Love’s Labour’s Lost into Australian cinemas earlier this year, has confirmed they will broadcast another RSC production, The Merchant of Venice later this month. Directed by award winning Polly Findlay, the play has earned sensational reviews in the United Kingdom.   

The Merchant of Venice opened at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon in May this year, and now audiences around the world will have the opportunity to see this outstanding production of Shakespeare’s uncompromising tragedy. Take a look at the trailer https://onscreen.rsc.org.uk/the-merchant-of-venice/trailer.aspx

Live cinema broadcasts have become increasingly successful in Australian cinemas, as they offer a unique experience.  For Royal Shakespeare Company performances, several cameras are placed around the stage auditorium, offering an intimate experience to cinema audiences, who can feel right in the heart of the action.
