[embed-1] In less than two months, Spoleto Festival USA hits the streets (stages, natch) of Charleston, and we’re already excited. If you too can’t wait to take in a play or five, watch live music at CofC’s Cistern Yard (always a treat), and pack a picnic for the finale in Riverfront Park, then you may want to check out Spoleto’s Instagram.
The account features profiles of this year’s artists, backstories on Charleston landmarks, and most recently, a sneak peek of some of this year’s sets.
The Festival’s scene shop (where the magic happens) had a lot going on recently (see above) — from the construction of the stage for the performers of Shakespeare’s Globe, to bits and pieces coming together for the set of the fest’s one opera, Salome.
Check it all out in Spoleto’s IG Stories.
