Shakespeare's Globe, London: Introduction to Shakespeare (1:00) -- Scope and Breadth of "Antony and Cleopatra" (3:49) -- "Antony and Cleopatra" Rehearsal, Act II, Scene 3 (1:26) -- "Antony and Cleopatra" Performance, Act II, Scene 3 (4:07) -- Discussion of "Antony and Cleopatra" (3:37) -- Credits: "Antony and Cleopatra": Young Actors in Training (0:58)
Perhaps the most sweepingly romantic of Shakespeare's tragedies, Antony and Cleopatra portrays two leaders of the ancient world at the mercy of their very human desires. Filmed at the Globe Theatre, this program spotlights young actors from first-rate London drama schools as they workshop Act II, Scene 3, from the play. Shakespeare's rendition of Cleopatra's legendary allure-and its impact not only on Antony but on the male psyche in general-comes to life through professionally directed rehearsals, a filmed performance, and a spirited discussion among the actors afterwards.
