The 2015 Stratford Festival Gala will celebrate the extraordinary career of Colm Feore, one of Canada’s greatest actors. He divides his time between the worlds of classical theatre and major film and television projects, recently giving an unforgettable performance as King Lear both on the Festival Theatre stage and in cinemas as the inaugural production in the Stratford Festival HD project.
His Stratford credits include many of the greatest Shakespearean roles – Lear, Hamlet, Coriolanus, Romeo and Richard III – as well as astonishing performances in Cyrano de Bergerac, The Beaux’ Stratagem, Don Juan (in both French and English), Oliver! and My Fair Lady.
His versatility on stage is mirrored in his film and television work where his 130 credits include key roles in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, the Oscar-winning film Chicago, the recently-released Spider Man 2, The Borgias and Slings and Arrows.
The gala evening will include tributes and musical entertainment by members of the Stratford Festival company and special gifts. Tickets will go on sale in early May.
