The Festival has been operating since early June and will be featuring performances until September 25th. The Mainstage tent holds 520 people and is open ended during the performances. This enables each performance to incorporate natural Vancouver scenery showcasing ocean, mountain and skylines into the shows backdrop- a highlight in the Bard experience.
The second stage, the Douglas Campbell Studio Stage, seats 240 spectators and will be featuring Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays and some of his great classics presented with less traditional stagings. Classics being performed include Much to do About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, Falstaff, and Henry V. In addition to its Shakespeare productions, Bard offers many ancillary activities including opera concerts and specialty workshops and forums. The tented ‘Bard Village’ offers a range of patron services including concessions, bar and boutique.
