Today is opening day for us as we host the First Folio on tour from @folgerlibrary! We'll celebrate this honor on IG this morning with an illustration of late 19th century Polish opera star, Jean de Reszke, in a dramatic portrayal of Shakespeare's Romeo. (From Music of the Modern World, Anton Seidl, New York: Appleton and Co., 1895) If you'll be in Las Vegas during September, don your best tights and schedule a visit, once you've learned about all our many related events: (Okay, the tights are optional. But we DO look forward to an exciting month of Shakespeare ahead!) #firstfolio #shx400 #shakespeare400 #unlv #shakespeare #romeoandjuliet #librariesofinstagram
