CINÉSPECTACLE: ANTONY & CLEOPATRA

CINÉSPECTACLE: ANTONY & CLEOPATRA
Picking up where Angus Jackson’s Julius Caesar leaves off, Iqbal Khan offers his refi ned, sober, yet formidable rendering, giving way to the great acting performances.

Following Julius Caesar’s assassination, Mark Antony, Octavius Caesar and Lepidus form a triumvirate as joint rulers of the known world. Antony, however, is captivated by Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, and neglects his duties to spend time with her in Alexandria. This scandal creates a rift between Antony and Octavius. News comes that control of Rome is being challenged by Pompey. Antony is forced to return, and agrees to cement his alliance with Octavius by marrying his sister, Octavia. Back in Egypt, the news of Antony’s marriage angers Cleopatra. On the brink of war, Antony and Octavius make peace with Pompey. Shortly afterwards, Octavius attacks Pompey anyway, and dismisses Lepidus from the triumvirate. Antony sends Octavia to negotiate with her brother while he returns secretly to Alexandria. News arrives in Rome that Antony and Cleopatra have crowned themselves king and queen in Alexandria. Octavius declares war on Egypt.
