Shakespeare im Park: Elves and Errors

William Shakespeare

In cooperation with Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron

Premiere 08/12/2020 / Schloss Leopoldskron


Shakespeare sends the confused and the confusing into the great outdoors – and we are following in their tracks. Rosalind and Celia, Phebe and Silvius, Miranda and Ferdinand are in love and very much perplexed; Ariel and Prospero, Oberon and Puck play their tricks and add to everyone’s confusion. The characters seem familiar, but just what Shakespeare play are they from? You are quite right to wonder: the play is called “Elves and Errors” – and it is from the pen of Shakespeare, even though the Bard himself never wrote it like that…

For our latest excursion to the park of Schloss Leopoldskron, Carl Philip von Maldeghem has recombined Shakespearean scenes. Characters from Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, “As You Like It” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” meet with enamoured pilgrims and others figures in the thralls of love, longing and lust, inspiring great performances by the acting ensemble. A highly entertaining “best of Shakespeare” that comes with a picnic and a beautiful walk!
