National Theatre Production
Ralph Fiennes ( The English Patient, James Bond : Spectre) and Sophie Okonedo (Chimerica, Hotel Rwanda) play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power.
Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defender of Rome. But at the fringes of a war -torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra & Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.
Simon Godwin (Hansard, Twelfth Night) directed this critically acclaimed production, available to watch on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel from 7th May.
