About this Event

This is an Encore Screening

Broadcast live from the National Theatre, Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power.

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.

Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following broadcasts of Twelfth Night, Man and Superman and The Beaux’ Stratagem.

Time Out

★★★★

‘Dressed like a diva from the golden age of Hollywood, Okonedo revels in Cleopatra’s contradictory nature, capturing her wit and vanity... Okonedo is magical in the first half, and Fiennes dominates the second. His Antony is memorably intense.’
