Editorial Reviews

Shakespearean Drama of the Highest Quality Performed at an authentic recreation of The Globe. With performances by world famous award winning Shakespearean actors this series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. Two of history's most famous lovers are caught between their consummate love for one another and the struggles for power amoung the rulers of the Roman world. At the time of this play. Mark Antony, Octavius Caesar adn M. Aemilius Lepidus are the members of the triumvirate that rule the Roman world. Mark Antony is consumed with his love for Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt and spends much time with her to the exclusion of his duties as a Roman ruler. When rebellions rise against the triumvirate, Anthony returns to Rome to join the defense. In time, Antony returns to Cleopatra in Egypt. In a quest for sole power, Caesar follows and wages a fierce battle aganist him. Upon hearing a false report of Cleopatra's death, Antony falls on his sword. Cleopatra chooses to die from the bite of an asp rather than befall the fate of returning to Rome as Caesar's prize. Featuring Timothy Dalton, Lynn Redgrave, Nichelle Nichols, John Carradine.

This is high camp, You want to laugh even in parts that are not funny. The casting is imaginative to say the least. I would not suggest watching this even for the poetry as they seem to have failed to even find that.

Surprisingly good of Shakespeare. Conservative in the sense of not overly clever production. Very straightforward (which I appreciate). A filmed production with Timothy Dalton and Lynn Redgrave in the lead roles. The rest of the cast is filled with 70s TV stars, Anthony Geary (Luke, of Luke and Laura) as Octavius. Walter Koenig (Pompey), Nichelle Nichols (Charmian) ... that guy who was always in Barney Miller and the Odd Couple as Lepidus. Definitely worth the time, and I'm going to check out the rest of the series.

Cleopatra and Antony are Shakespeare's greatest argument (even more than Romeo and Juliet) that romance is a mental illness. Really enjoyable.

There is a difference between old and classic shows. This one was just old, I was only able to watch about 5 minutes of it.
