Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Arts -

One of Bri­tain’s most cel­e­brated act­ing tal­ents, Sir Ian McK­ellen, takes the iconic Shake­speare role as the ti­tle char­ac­ter in King Lear. Long-es­tab­lished as a prom­i­nent name in the­atre, McK­ellen adds this role to a reper­toire of lead roles with the Na­tional The­atre and Royal Shake­speare Com­pany. He an­nounced last year that King Lear could be his last ma­jor Shake­spearean role. The tragic play fol­lows Lear’s de­scent into mad­ness, ex­plor­ing themes of fam­ily, ego­ism and the na­ture of hu­man suf­fer­ing. box­of­
