In the ruthless, ever-expanding empire of Rome, Shakespeare created an astonishing portrait of a love too great for the world.
Mark Antony is a hero in a post-heroic world. He is torn between duty and love; his responsibility to Rome and his new life in Egypt; to the world he helped conquer; and his passion for Cleopatra.
Complex, charismatic, fierce, Cleopatra is a mother, a lover, a Queen. A woman not to be defied.
Witness the insight and power of Catherine McClements (Phèdre) as she returns to Bell Shakespeare for one of the greatest roles ever written.
