Globe Theatre from London will tour Belgrade and perform Hamlet, directed by Dominic Dromgoole and Bill Buckhurst, in the National Theatre (Main Stage) on 18 June. The tour to Serbia is a part of world tour by the famous theatre. The world tour starts on 23 April, in order to celebrate 450 years since the birth of legendary playwright William Shakespeare.


During the two-year theatre adventure, titled Globe to Globe: Hamlet, one of the best-known and most frequently produced Shakespeare's tragedies will be performed in almost all countries in the world.
The troupe will tour Europe first, then the Caribbean, Northern and Southern America, from where the troupe will proceed to the west coast of Africa, Australia and islands in the Pacific, then Indonesia, Japan, China and Asian countries, upon where they will proceed to the east coast of Africa and back to Europe.The tour will start and end in the Globe Theatre, a replica of Elizabethan theatre built on the Thames' south bank in London. The tour will end with the final performance on 23 April 2016, the date signifying four centuries since Shakespeare's death, as the Globe Theatre is dedicated to Shakespeare and his plays. Mr. Peter Brook, director, finds Hamlet the most universal play out of all Shakespeare's plays.
"The six words in English of which everybody has heard are 'to be or not to be'. There can hardly be a place on this planet where these words were not translated. To produce Hamlet in its original language everywhere in the world is a very brave and dynamic endeavour", said Mr. Peter Brook.
The National Theatre performed on stage of this cult theatre on 11 May 2012, during the Cultural Olympiad event and performed King Henry the Sixth with success; the play was produced by the National Theatre in Belgrade and directed by Nikita Milivojević.Special importance of this performance is in the fact that it was the first time Serbian language was spoken on stage of the famous theatre since it had been established, 400 years ago, which represents an honour and a privilege for the National Theatre, and Serbia.
The Cultural Olympiad started on 23 April as an introduction to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. In the course of six weeks, theatre companies from 37 countries performed all 37 Shakespeare’s pieces in their own languages.
Tickets priced 3500,2000 and 500 RSD will be available as of 18th April.
