Pop Up Globe

Events

More Information

The world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of the second Globe, the theatre Shakespeare and his company built and opened in 1614 after the first Globe theatre burned to the ground.

The audacious project was originally planned as a one-off in Auckland to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016. Created entirely from scratch by an international company and cast in under 18 months, Pop-up Globe took the city by storm welcoming over 100,000 New Zealand attendances and in a season extended twice by popular demand.

Following hot on the heels of this initial sell-out success, a critically-acclaimed second season in 2017 entertained another 100,000 people. The phenomenon resulted in international interest from leading promoters and city representatives from cities around the world who travelled to New Zealand to witness it for themselves.

Pop-up Globe was thrilled to make its international debut in Melbourne in 2017. This season delighted audiences, sold a further 150,000 tickets, and saw two season extensions.
