Bigtime art warning

I saw a riveting performance of "The Merchant of Venice" last night with a friend - I have to admit that I'd never seen it before. In case you haven't either: the play is difficult to watch because the protagonists and their friends are so overtly antisemitic - particularly since the play it ends like your usual feigned-identity sort of romantic play. So the structure of the play itself is offputting, forcing one to be sympathetic to a group of characters who really don't deserve it (though of course the Jewish character isn't pristine either). Disturbing.

Here we have an interior of the theatre and a couple of interesting things that I saw in the dark on the way home.

Quailia Merchant of Venice is one of my favourites, but that might be because the first time I saw it Shylock was astonishingly good - and my mother said she'd never seen the character played so sincerely.

Anyway love #3

Stav1 A major project of mine in college was a scene from Merchant...having flashbacks...generally I don't like the play, for obnoxious Venetians I much prefer Othello;-) But I don't think I've ever seen the whole thing done!
