Antony and Cleopatra: Passion, Politics and Romance Collide
Journey to ancient Egypt from the comfort of D.C.'s historic Folger Shakespeare Library, which will be transformed to present the play in-the-round. Directed by Robert Richmond (Othello, Timon of Athens, Henry V), Folger Theatre presents Antony and Cleopatra, the story of one of the most famous couples in history and their tempestuous, doomed love affair. They were two of the greatest lovers to ever walk the earth, but they were also political figures, and the pressures and the demands of their public life eventually tore them apart. Cleopatra is one of Shakespeare's most complex female roles, all too human underneath the tragic grandeur. Allow the Queen of Egypt to rule your heart for an evening.
