The season's first live show of the National Theater Live is Shakespeares King Lear.
In the main role we see the amazing Ian McKellen. September 27th, it will be broadcast live at selected cinemas in Sweden.
Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf in the Lord of the Ring Movies, Magneto in the X-Men movies) received five star reviews at the premiere at the Chichester Festival Theater. The performance went for completely sold out houses.
This is a modern version of Shakespeare's intense, moving and shocking play of honesty and betrayal. Where a family and a country are thrown into a violent and bitter power struggle. King Lear is a performance from NT Live.
