Antony & Cleopatra - NT Live

Broadcast from the programme National Theatre Live

Broadcast from London’s Olivier Theatre, the NT’s critically-acclaimed production has impressed the British audience receiving multiple five-star reviews. William Shakespeare’s gripping drama intertwines politics, passion and power, with Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo in the title roles of the famous fated couple.

The National Theatre’s blockbuster, is slick, stylish and modern with a huge revolving set (including a swimming pool on stage), a big supporting cast and gorgeous costumes, and real snakes on stage (!)

In the aftermath of Julius Caesar’s assassination, General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. Having neglected his political duties whilst in Egypt, Antony returns to Rome, to attempt to restore his political position. Torn between his duty to Rome and his devotion to Cleopatra, Antony’s actions spark a war which threatens to destroy their love.

Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following broadcasts of Twelfth Night, Man and Superman and The Beaux’ Stratagem.
