The new Shakespeare in the Parks show is getting a new “glazing painting” from a local art studio.
“Shaking the Shores” star Billie Joe Armstrong is directing a performance based on the painting, which depicts a scene from the Shakespeare in England musical, The Tempest.
The show is set to premiere on May 1 at the University of Toronto’s Ballet Theatre.
The new painting is a recreation of the scene in which Queen Elizabeth II is depicted standing at a tree in the forest, with her arm in the shape of a crown, her fingers pointing towards the sky, and her left hand grasping a long, green rope.
Armstrong’s character, named Lady Glastonbury, is shown holding the rope in her right hand and then walking toward the tree.
Her right hand is clasped behind her back, and she is wearing a robe with a crown and a red satin bodice.
She stands in front of the tree, with the crowns of the trees above her, with a red cloak draped over her shoulders.
She is surrounded by the arms of the Queen and the arms and legs of the King.
“Shaking The Shores,” which was commissioned by a Canadian arts foundation, uses a new method of lighting.
The painting will be presented to the public at the opening of the show.
While it is not the first time a painting of the Royal Family has been commissioned, the new painting seems to be more unique, said Kelly McGinnis, a professor of media studies at the Ryerson University.
According to McGinnas, there have been other instances of paintings of the royal family commissioned by other Canadian arts organizations, including in the form of sculpture and film.
“In the past, these have been done with a similar style and in the same location, with similar lighting and a similar artist,” McGinns said.
During the filming of the new show, the artist, who is a retired Canadian War Museum curator, will be able to tell the story of the story and the role of the artists who created it.
She will also be able tell the real-life story of how the painting was made and what it means for the history of the art.
