MADC’s Shakespeare in the Gardens Returns The Merry Wives of Windsor (Terrace) reboots MADC’s much-loved annual outdoor Shakespeare tradition at San Anton with a Maltese twist.
This summer, audiences can once again experience the magic of Shakespeare performed outdoors at the beautiful San Anton Gardens in Attard for the first time since 2019.
Following a hiatus due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, MADC’s production of The Merry Wives of Windsor (Terrace) in July continues the theatre company’s decades-long annual appointment with the Bard at San Anton Gardens.
“MADC is delighted to produce our first Shakespeare at San Anton since before the pandemic,” says MADC Artistic Director, Marylu Coppini. “Our annual tradition of staging an open-air Shakespeare play began in 1938, interrupted only by World War II and now, COVID-19. We are looking forward to welcoming audiences back to San Anton, to delight once again in live theatre in a truly unique setting.”
One of the Bard’s classic comedies is set to mark the return of this Shakespearean summer staple from 16-24 July, with a staging and storyline that is distinctly Maltese.
