Internationally renowned for his visually powerful adaptations of Shakespeare, legendary director Yukio Ninagawa returns to the Barbican with his eagerly-awaited production of Shakespeare’s romance tragedy, Cymbeline.

Full of sexual jealousy, tension, intrigue and magic, the play follows Princess Imogen, who has secretly married the lowly Posthumus for love. When the secret is out, she incurs the wrath of her father King Cymbeline, and becomes the target of the dangerous schemings of her evil stepmother.

Ninagawa’s previous directorial credits at the Barbican include Musashi, Hamlet, Coriolanus and a Kabuki Twelfth Night. Cymbeline is part of the World Shakespeare Festival, which is produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company for London 2012 Festival.
