Ophelia After Hours: Enter Ophelia

Concert or Performance

26 Apr 2019 to 28 Apr 2019

See Ophelia in Love and Desire Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces from the Tate and experience the reimagining of Shakespeare’s drowned damsel Enter Ophelia on stage, presented by Essential Theatre & Three Birds Theatre.

This is a thrilling black comedy exploring femininity, isolation and silliness.

Director John Kachoyan has expressed his delight at the NGA presenting Enter Ophelia at the Gallery. He says, ‘Enter Ophelia was born out of the imagery and icons that have been built up around Shakespeare’s neglected heroine over time. The Pre-Raphaelites and their circle played with and used these images in their work. The production is a dynamic, darkly funny exploration of the myth-making underpinning our idea of Shakespeare’s women’.

Ophelia After Hours invites you to see this pacey one hour play in the James O Fairfax Theatre and then enjoy exclusive after-hours access to Love & Desire Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces from the Tate during the exhibition’s final weekend.

Ticket includes exhibition entry and a cash bar will be available.
