Shakespeare’s Globe On Screen returns for its fifth year of performances from the London home of Shakespeare. The season opens with the critically-acclaimed The Duchess of Malfi which will be screened in cinemas across the UK from Thursday 26 February.
The Globe’s production of The Duchess of Malfi is the first ever theatrical production to be filmed entirely by candlelight. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, with designs by Jonathan Fensom and music by Claire van Kampen, this unique production was created especially for the Globe’s new indoor space, with 250 candles used for each performance.
The widowed Duchess of Malfi (Gemma Arterton) longs to marry her lover, the steward Antonio. But her rancorous brothers, Ferdinand and the Cardinal, are implacably opposed to the match. When their spy, Bosola, discovers that the Duchess has secretly married and carries Antonio’s child, they exact a terrible and horrific revenge.
Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Ella Smith perform Sing A Happy Song from the motion picture The Voices.
Gemma was featured in the December issue of Glamour UK. Below you can find a link to the behind the scenes video from the photoshoot:
