The UT Theatre in Italy program brings theatre to life through creative participation. It takes University of Texas at Austin students out of the classroom and into the piazzas and streets of the breathtaking city of Florence, viewed through the lens of cultural history and live performance. Florence is the cultural center and hub for study and opportunity. This faculty-led study abroad program takes place over seven weeks during the summer long-semester as students are integrated into the local culture and arts community in Florence. During the course of the program, students will interact with international professional artists with a focus on Shakespeare's plays in Italy as they study the performance traditions, culture and art of central Italy.
The UT Theatre in Italy program is open to graduate and undergraduate students from all University of Texas at Austin departments.
