Cardiff Open Air Theatre: Much Ado About Nothing

Cardiff Open Air Theatre: Much Ado About Nothing


Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival - "I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me". Don Pedro returns victorious from battle with his soldiers Claudio and Benedick in tow, pitching up on Governor Leonato's estate for a month's celebration. As Leonato's daughter, Hero, rekindles a courtship with Claudio, his niece, Beatrice, rekindles her 'merry war' with the 'very dull fool' Benedick. Meanwhile, Don Pedro's brother John, hatches his own plan of revenge, and we discover that all is not fair in love and war.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of Cardiff’s Sophia Gardens, Cardiff Open Air Theatre: Everyman 19 is the UK’s largest open air theatre festival of its kind outside of London. Enjoy award winning theatre with undercover seating, a fully stocked festival bar and onsite festival catering, all in the heart of the Welsh capital!

Venue: Sophia Gardens, Sophia Close, Cardiff CF11 9HW.
