Capital Classics: Bringing professional, classical theatre to greater Hartford since 1991.

Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival Presents


Capital Classics will be staging of Othello — as part of the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival — for three weekends (July 14-31, 2016), outdoors on the grounds of the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, CT.

Directed by longtime Company member, Michael Nowicki, Othello is the tragic tale of love, jealousy, betrayal and revenge. More details on Othello will come soon — including about our special pre-show events, such as music, singing, and even discussions about Shakespeare, the play and racial issues.

Performances will be held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 5:30 p.m. For over 25 years, we've build our reputation for making Shakespeare accessible to the thousands of fans that turn out each summer with their family and friends — and picnic baskets to enjoy outdoor "Shakespeare under the stars."

Be sure to keep up to date on our Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival and other exciting events (like our "Shakespeare Book Club" discussions at the Noah Webster Library in West Hartford by following us on Facebook or by subscribing to our e-newsletter list.
