Łódź Celebrates Ira Aldridge (1807-1867) the First Black Shakespeare Tragedian

    Opis produktu

    Łódź has a special connection with Ira Aldridge (1807–1867), the first black Shakespeare tragedian. Though he never performed in our wthe rehearsals of Shakespeare’s Othello on August 7, 1867. This connection is not limited to the state funeral which the City organized for him. Over decades the city has taken care of his grave. In 2007 the International Shakespeare Studies Centre organized an international symposium devoted to the bicentennial anniversary of his birth. In 2014 we had a plaque installed to celebrate his name. And in 2017 several events – a conference, exhibition and theatrical performance – took place to celebrate the anniversaries of his birth (1807) and death (1867). This catalogue presents selected events celebrating the 150th anniversary of Ira Aldridge’s death in our town.
