RSC Live: Anthony & Cleopatra (12A)
New RSC Season for 2017
Iqbal Khan (Othello, Much Ado About Nothing) returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s tragedy, which follows on from Julius Caesar.
After Caesar’s assassination, Mark Antony reached the heights of power. Now he is neglecting his empire for a life of decadent seduction with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. As he is torn between love and duty, Antony’s military brilliance deserts him, and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end.
