Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival continues its 21st season with the passionate tragedy Antony and Cleopatra. It plays Tuesdays through Sundays in the 520-seat open-ended Mainstage tent in Vanier Park from June 17 through September 24, 2010 in repertory with the currently running production of Much Ado About Nothing. Long-time Bard on the Beach Artistic Associate and well-known Bard actor Scott Bellis makes his Bard directorial debut.
Passion, war and betrayal erupt in this rich romantic tragedy. Although the sensual Cleopatra has conquered the heart of Rome’s greatest soldier, Mark Antony must choose between duty and desire. To secure a political alliance, he marries Octavius Caesar’s sister. His return to Egypt and Cleopatra ignites a war in which one of the world’s great love stories plays out its final chapter. As these larger-than-life characters engage in an epic struggle between the transcendent power of love and the military might of imperialism, events unfold that change the world forever.
