ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA: Performance On Screen
By William Shakespeare
★★★★★ “Riveting. Both a Roman triumph and an Egyptian feast.” – What’s On Stage
Captured live on stage in London, Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient) and Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power.
Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.
