Antony and Cleopatra
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge
One fateful meeting reshapes the ancient world when Roman triumvir Marc Antony falls like Caesar before him for Cleopatra, the powerful and fascinating Queen of the Nile. As civil unrest plagues Rome, this exotic and intriguing tale illuminates the collision of power and passion as empires hang in the balance. Shakespeare’s dark and intimate portrait of this storied affair features some of the most transcendent poetry on love and loss in the canon. In a world of great nations and greater longing, the quest for transcendence yields both tragedy and triumph in one of history’s greatest love stories.
