Troilus & Cressida - 1981 - DVD

"I take today a wife, and my election..."

As reviewed in Choice, "This video of Troilus and Cressida is simply excellent, and will be a valuable resource to anyone teaching the play." A well-acted production, with creative use of the camera, it presents the modern interpretation of the play as the negation of chivalry, love and honor. Cresida deserts her adored Troilus, with scarcely a second thought. On the battlefield, the hero Hector dies unceremoniously.

Shakespeare is rightly considered the world's greatest playwright for the soaring beauty of his language, for his profound insight into human nature, for the truths he dramatized and for the realism of the characters he created. He was and remains a superb entertainer.

Featuring some of Britain's most distinguished talent, these DVDs are ideal for libraries, educational purposes and continuing personal enjoyment. Ambrose Video, has digitally restored the masters (which are over 20 years old) for the best DVD viewing expereince possible.

Cast: Anton Lesser, Suzanne Burden
