Antony & Cleopatra

Friday, 1/18 to Sunday, 1/20

"Sophie Okonedo and Ralph Fiennes are at the top of their game...and director Simon Godwin proves yet again that he combines a contemporary eye with a fastidious ear for Shakespeare’s language." – Michael Billington, The Guardian

Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire, the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra (Sophie Okonedo) and Mark Antony (Ralph Fiennes) have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war. Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following broadcasts of Twelfth Night, Man and Superman and The Beaux’ Stratagem.

The Friday 1/18 screening features English subtitles as part of our accessibility initiative.

This production includes one 15 minute intermission halfway through the screening. Place a lunch order from our NTL menu at our café before the start of the show and your meal will be available during the interval.
