About the Show
The most famous couple that ever lived. Antony and Cleopatra.
In the ruthless, ever-expanding empire of Rome, Shakespeare creates 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.
Bell Shakespeare’s Artistic Director, Peter Evans, continues to explore Shakespeare’s ability to take the greatest moments in history and make them profoundly personal.
