From Hamlet to Romeo and Juliet to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's celebrated works have touched people around the world.

Then she brings history full circle to the present-day reconstruction of the Globe theater.

Aliki has created an animated tableau for Shakespeare lovers of all ages to savor!
