“Both an opulent slice of Roman history and an intimate tragedy…Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo have simmering chemistry.”--Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

"Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo are a magnificent match…at the top of their game.”--Michael Billington, Guardian

Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony (Fiennes) now rules alongside
his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian
Queen Cleopatra (Okonedo) and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic
fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war in Shakespeare’s
great tragedy of politics, passion and power. DCP digital. (Description courtesy of NT
