Synopsis:

The loyalties of Antony and Cleopatra are tested with tragic outcomes as the soldier of Rome and the queen of Egypt struggle against the power and authority of the emerging Roman Empire. During a mission to Egypt, Antony falls immediately and irrevocably in love with its queen, the beautiful Cleopatra. As Cleopatra returns his favour, their fates and that of Egypt are sealed forever.

Known as “The Bard of Avon,” William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare’s works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare’s innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.
