We’re delighted to announce that for the third consecutive summer you and your friends will be able to enjoy Shakespeare in the Santa Fe Botanical Garden’ Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden’s amphitheater. Shakespeare in the Garden has offered memorable productions of The Tempest in 2017 and A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2018. This year features Romeo and Juliet, the lyric tragedy that is widely regarded as one of the most evocative and influential of all the playwright’s works.

Presented by Santa Fe Classic Theater, and directed by Patrick Briggs, this masterpiece will be staged in association with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden and The Shakespeare Guild.
