The legend of Cleopatra has everything: opulence, power, seduction and celebrity.

The audacious power plays and tumultuous love affairs of the last Queen of Egypt have captivated artists, musicians, filmmakers and writers for more than 2000 years.

The Banquet of Cleopatra (1743–44) by Giambattista Tiepolo is a prized painting in the NGV Permanent Collection. Discover the provenance and meaning of Tiepolo’s scene of outrageous extravagance across three Sundays in October with talks and performances each week.
