Have you ever wanted to travel back in time and take in the sounds of a Shakespeare play in the original Globe Theatre? That’s a really specific thing to want to do, but now you’re going to get your chance to do just that.

This September—marking the 400th year since Shakespeare’s death—a full-scale replica of the second Globe Theatre will be built at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Over a period of 6 weeks, the three-storey, 900 person theatre will be putting on Shakespeare classics such as Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, Othello and Henry V—you’ll be able to catch epic battles, laugh-out-loud comedy, special effects, elaborate costumes, spectacular dances, and sword fights in full suits of armour.

You can grab your tickets here, it’s an event you don’t want to be missing.
