“If you prick us, do we not bleed?”
Shakespeare's unforgettable tale of mercy, justice, generosity and greed. After years of persecution for his religious faith, Shylock finally gets his chance for revenge. The merchant Antonio cannot pay his debt, and Shylock demands his due: a pound of flesh. To save Antonio's life, the resourceful Portia must triumph in the courtroom – but at what cost? The Merchant of Venice weaves together humor and pathos in a spellbinding, suspenseful drama.
