A place of political intrigues, bacchanalia, wealth and avarice, a threshold between East and West, and a haven of art and culture: Venice is the perfect setting for complex and far-reaching drama. This course explores how (and why) Shakespeare stages such powerful and complex plays in this city of many colours.
