Inspired by fear, a host of Roman senators conspire to kill Julius Caesar before he can name himself dictator and lord over the common people. Cassius whispers falsehoods into the impressionable ears of Brutus, whose only concern is that the people of Rome will lose their voice under a single emperor. Caesar is slain on the Ides of March on the steps of the capitol. Octavius, Caesar's nephew, and Antony, Caesar's closest friend and supporter, move to avenge the death of Rome's great leader.

Antony and Cleopatra will be performed in August of 2017 in the beautiful MacAllister Amphitheater.
