Shakespeare's Globe 2014 production ofAnthony & Cleopatra filmed on the Globe stage.
Antony and Cleopatra is Shakespeare's great historical love story, a tragedy infused with comic elements that explores the conflicting claims of sex and power, expressed in poetry of breathtaking beauty. Conveying the polarities of Rome and Egypt, Jonathan Munby's "exquisitely understated" (Independent) Globe production effortlessly captures the play's cinematic rhythm, with Clive Wood cast as a ruffian "indomitable" Antony (Financial Times) and Eve Best "restlessly sensual" (Guardian) in her lauded portrayal of the mercurial Cleopatra.
