Antony & Cleopatra is an intense love story, exploring the constant conflict between duty and emotion with characters so charismatic they continue to fascinate after 2,000 years. Shakespeare achieved some of his most beautiful poetry in this play, and the richness of the language makes it perfect for audio.
Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

"Great Way to Experience Shakespeare"
Oh, these wonderful voices! I've listened to and reviewed a number of the BBC radio Shakespeare performances. This is another compelling one. "Antony & Cleopatra" has never been my favorite of the tragedies, but it has some of Shakespeare's most beautiful language. And, in this version, it's easy to see why Antony and Cleopatra are still viewed as one of the most interesting couples in history. Great passion, political intrigue, betrayal, death -- this play has it all.
Most of us cannot regularly experience Shakespeare's plays with the very best of English acting -- hooray for the BBC and Audible for making them available!
"Excellent oral presentation"
I wish I could see a visual performance of this play with these actors, their voices were rich and deep conveying Shakespeare's voice.
