Caesar and Cleopatra 2008 Stratford Shakespeare Festival Production DVD
Stratford Shakepeare Festival Theatre Production 2008, starring Christopher Plummer and Nikki M. James. In Caesar and Cleopatra, Bernard Shaw uses his legendary wit to turn ancient history on its head - and to challenge Shakespeare's view of his two famous protagonists. Political drama meets sparkling comedy as veteran strategist Julius Caesar becomes mentor to the enchanting teenage queen of Roman-occupied Egypt. From her first timid encounter with Caesar under a desert moon, Cleopatra grows in strength to become a determined player in the game of power politics - but has she really learned what Caesar wanted to teach her? In his inimitable style, Shaw turns this centuries-old story into a hilarious yet affecting critique of human nature that remains as pertinent today as when he wrote it--reminding readers once again why he is regarded as one of the English language's greatest playwrights.
