The Globe

The Globe Theatre is an English renaissance theatre in London, where several of William Shakespeares plays were preformed. Within two stories, 3000 guests could fit into the theatre. The scene was placed under the open sky. The theatre was first opened in 1599, but burned down during a performance of Henry VIII, 29 of June 1613. In 1977 a modern reconstruction of  The Globe, named “Shakespeare’s Globe” opened. It was placed approximately 230 meters from the site of the original theatre.

In February 2016, a temporary full-scale replica of the second Globe theatre, called “the pop-up Globe” and based on scholarly reanalyses of the surviving evidence for the 1614 building, opened downtown.
