Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.
BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.
In the acclaimed BBC Radio Shakespeare series, each play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre, and comes with an accompanying booklet which includes a scene-by-scene synopsis, full character analyses, brief biographies of the leading actors and of Shakespeare himself, as well as an essay from the producer on their interpretation of the play.
'Antony And Cleopatra' centres around the soldier and noble prince Mark Antony's enthrallment with the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, and the tumultuous relationship which ensues and ultimately ends in tragedy.
