National Theatre At Home’s latest FREE online offering is Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra directed by Simon Godwin.

At the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.

Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, James Bond: Spectre) and Sophie Okonedo (Chimerica, Hotel Rwanda) play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power.

Antony & Cleopatra is streaming for free from Thursday 7 May. Available until Thursday 14 May 2020. The running time is 3 hours 8mins with a short interval. It is subtitled.

This filmed performance contains some staged violence and flashing lights.
