Duration: 3 hours 24 minutes
Mark Antony, one of the three rulers of the Roman world, has become the thrall of the fascinating Cleopatra. Affairs of state call him to Rome, but the attractions of the queen of Egypt prove impossible to resist. From one of history’s greatest love stories Shakespeare builds this magnificent tragedy of the clash between love and duty.
Cleopatra is played by Estelle Kohler, Mark Antony by Ciaran Hinds, Ian Hughes is Octavious Caesar, and David Burke is Domitius Enobarbus.
“This dramatic performance is faithful to Shakespeare’s text, and the actors are excellent; it is no mere reading of the text.”—AudioFile
