Description: Live Shakespearean theatre filmed at London’s Globe Theatre so that it can be enjoyed all around the world. Antony and Cleopatra is Shakespeare's great historical love story, a tragedy infused with comic elements that explores the conflicting claims of sex and power, expressed in poetry of breathtaking beauty. Conveying the polarities of Rome and Egypt, Jonathan Munby's "exquisitely understated" (Independent) Globe production effortlessly captures the play's cinematic rhythm, with Clive Wood cast as a ruffian "indimitable" Antony (Financial Times) and Eve Best "restlessly sensual" (Guardian) in her lauded protrayal of the mercurial Cleopatra.
