Event Type

What if Florida was the backdrop for Romeo & Juliet and The Tempest, two Shakespearean classics, where lost kingdoms, dangerous romance and real mystery abound?  Imagine no more!  This American odyssey comes alive  through an original script adapted by Florida playwrights with a diverse cast of talented actors and dancers. Audiences will be treated to folkloric choreography and rarely heard traditional music by Afro-Cuban artists introduced through breathtaking images from acclaimed Iranian born Swede and South Florida resident Painter, Karl Momen. Momen has painted and published a series of works inspired by William Shakespeare and the orchestral masterpieces of Richard Wagner. The book will be available for purchase and signing by Momen.

Join us Friday, April 27, 2018 at the NSU Art Museum for a special engagement performance of Act I and a reception and conversation with Karl Momen and the cast.
