Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo star in Shakespeare’s great tragedy of politics, passion and power, from the National Theatre’s 2018 season of live recordings direct from the London stage.

“Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love.

In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.” (National Theatre)

Spectacular. Go and see it.
