Anthony and Cleopatra (12A)
RSC, Recorded Live
Iqbal Khan returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s tragedy of love and duty, picking up the story where Julius Caesar ends.
DIRECTOR: Iqbal Khan
STARRING: Antony Byrne, Josette Simon
‘Antony & Cleopatra’ follows Caesar’s assassination and Mark Antony has reached new heights of power. Now he has neglected his empire for a life of decadent seduction with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.
Torn between love and duty, Antony’s military brilliance deserts him, and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end.
Iqbal Khan returns to the RSC to direct ‘Antony & Cleopatra’, following his critically acclaimed productions of ‘Othello’ (2015) and ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ (2012).
