For two years, a production of Hamlet has been travelling the world to mark the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare's birth. The tour, a project of the Globe theatre in London, is called Globe to Globe.
"They approached the Holy See about the possibility of finding a venue, and the possibility of putting on Hamlet," said Bishop Paul Tighe, the Adjunct Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Culture. "There was immediately a very warm response to the initiative."
The performance will take place in the extraterritorial Palazzo della Cancelleria, which houses the Holy See's main judicial offices.
