Antony and Cleopatra in Norwich this Month

Teaching

“One of Shakespeare’s most powerful plays, the story centres on one of Rome’s three leaders, Mark Antony, and the Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra. These two lovers are first featured at Cleopatra’s palace, but as the play continues Antony’s political and social duties take the action to Rome, Syria, Actium, Parthia (modern day Iraq), Athens, and to various military camps in Egypt. In short, the lovers are put in locations and situations where they question each other’s loyalty and love. The play’s ending is an example of how passion mingled with power, treachery, and misunderstanding, can lead to a tragic end.”
