Hidden in the Bois de Boulogne, in the Pré Catelan garden, the Théâtre de Verdure du Jardin Shakespeare is one of the most beautiful open-air theatres in the world. The audience sits on a large lawn around which are planted the flowers, trees and plants which are mentioned in five of Shakespeare's plays. Since 1992 the Tower Theatre Company has performed Shakespeare during the first week of June in this delightful setting.
