What: Theatre performance of William Shakespeare's As You Like It in a gorgeous outdoor amphitheatre.
Rosalind's father, the Duke, has been banished to the Forest of Arden and she has fallen in love with a young, honorable man named Orlando. When life gets too dangerous for her, she too runs away to the forest – but dressed as a man. By chance, her love Orlando also goes to the forest where he writes lavish – but bad – poetry to his love Rosalind. Can Rosalind – as a man – teach Orlando the true meaning of love and how to express himself?
