 “Richly textured, with big saucy acting.”

– Daily Mail

Following his critically acclaimed productions of Othello (2015), and Much Ado About Nothing (2012), Iqbal Khan returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare's tragedy of love and duty, picking up the story where Julius Caesar ends.

After Julius Caesar's assassination, Mark Antony has reached the heights of power. Now he has neglected his empire for a life of decadent seduction with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. Torn between love and duty, Antony's military brilliance deserts him, and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end.
