John Williams, Berta Rojas and Paco Peña perform Candlelit Concerts at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on 21st and 22nd July 2018

Shakespeare’s Globe presents the return of guitar virtuoso John Williams for a weekend of candlelit concerts in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 July 2018.

Following sell-out shows in 2014 and 2015, John Williams will return to the Globe this summer to play a pair of concerts alongside two fellow world-renowned musicians, Berta Rojas and Paco Peña. The weekend will mark an international celebration of classical guitar, and illustrates the centuries-old tradition of acoustic concerts in London’s indoor playhouses.

On Saturday 21 July, John will explore music ranging from Vivaldi to Venezuelan pieces, sharing the stage with Paraguayan guitarist Berta Rojas. Berta’s repertoire will pay homage to her compatriot and classical guitar pioneer, Agustín Barrios Mangoré.

The following evening, John and Paco Peña will perform a selection of their favourite works in celebration of their 49 year friendship. Multi-award-winning guitarist Paco Peña will continue to redefine our perceptions of flamenco, whilst John will explore Spanish pieces from the sixteenth century onwards.
