This new audio release features the music and speeches from the 2017 Royal Shakespeare Company production of Antony and Cleopatra, directed by Iqbal Khan. The music is presented by Laura Mvula. Also included is the music from the 1953 Shakespeare Memorial Theatre production by Antony Hopkins. Following Caesar’s assassination, Mark Antony has reached the heights of power. Now he has neglected his empire for a life of decadent seduction with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. Torn between love and duty, Antony’s military brilliance deserts him, and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end. This production by the Royal Shakespeare Company, featuring Josette Simon as Cleopatra and Antony Byrne as mark Antony and directed by Iqbal Khan, was greatly praised by critics. “Richly textured, with big saucy acting.” (Daily Mail) “This Antony & Cleopatra is the best I’ve ever seen.” (Evening Standard)
