The Roman General and the Egyptian Queen. Their romance gave birth to an empire, but their fiery longing came at a price. Caught between desire and duty, Antony and Cleopatra’s love affair shook the foundations of the known world. Power, politics, and passion collide in Shakespeare’s captivating tragedy. Director John Langs, who staged our 2010 production of Hamlet, returns to helm this legendary and tragic affair between two charismatic leaders.
