In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.
Politics and passion are violently intertwined in Shakespeare's gripping tale of power.
'Eternity was in our lips and eyes.'
Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play the famous fated couple.
Simon Godwin (Twelfth Night, Man and Superman, The Beaux' Stratagem) directs.
National Theatre Live broadcast on Thu 6 Dec.
Production supported by Areté Foundation / Betsy & Ed Cohen, Mary M. Miner and the Antony & Cleopatra production appeal.
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.
