Stratford Festival – Caesar & Cleopatra

 

CaesarAndCleopatra_ProductImage_20160412_01Caesar & Cleopatra is a witty and seductive comedy about the relationship between a veteran Roman political strategist and an enchanting Egyptian teenage queen. Stratford’s production was hailed by The New York Times as “the climactic event in the company’s impressive current season.” Now movie audiences can witness the acclaimed performance of legendary Canadian actor Christopher Plummer, and experience the drama, intrigue and comedy of George Bernard Shaw’s celebrated play. The production also stars Nikki M. James, who later went on to receive the 2011 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Nabulungi in The Book of Mormon. The high quality production captures the true experience of witnessing Shaw’s celebrated play on the prestigious Stratford Festival stage.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across China and Sicily.
