Opus Arte# Shakespeare Globe: Antony & Cleopatra DVD


""Is this well done?" a character asks at the end of Shakespeare's tragedy. I'd say that Jonathan Munby's production is, on the whole, extremely well done. It captures the play's cinematic rhythm as one scene dissolves into the next, and also its dreamlike quality ..." (The Guardian ★★★★)

"Eve Best makes a superb return to acting at Shakespeare's Globe, the theatre where she chose to launch her directorial career last summer. She's an appealing, often magnetically humorous Cleopatra. And if there are moments when her Queen of Egypt seems distinctly flirtatious, sprawling on a divan or dipping into the audience for a kiss, her powers of enchantment mostly feel measured and carefully managed. As Antony, the Roman general with whom she so pleasurably and painfully tangles, Clive Wood has a gruff masculinity that's tinged with angst." (Evening Standard ★★★)

"Jonathan Munby's production is a wonderfully clear and powerful interpretation of Shakespeare's late tragedy." (WhatsOn Stage ★★★★)

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.
