Special Fathom Features: Stratford Festival’s vivid performance of Shakespeare’s tragic love story comes to the big screen.
Fathom Events and BY Experience are delighted to bring the Stratford Festival’s performance of Shakespeare‘s commanding Antony and Cleopatra to select cinemas nationwide for a epic one-night event.
The steamy story of a midlife affair that shook the foundations of the ancient world comes to vivid life in the Stratford Festival production of Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, starring Geraint Wyn Davies and Yanna McIntosh as the powerful rulers whose insatiable love leads to the greatest of tragedies. Director Gary Griffin paints an unforgettable landscape depicting the devastation wrought by the heart’s transgressions.
Here’s what critics are saying:
“Yanna McIntosh makes Cleopatra the consummate sexual manipulator, proud of her talents, furious when they fail her.” Robert Cushman, National Post
“Antony and Cleopatra has two of Shakespeare’s most soaring characters, and the kind of final love-death sequence that great art thrives on.” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
“Geraint Wyn Davies offers us an Antony of boundless charm and eternal optimism.” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
“Antony and Cleopatra reminds us that sexuality is all too often wasted on the young. Its hero and heroine are old enough to know better. Nonetheless, they crash and burn in a sea of intense, obsessive, sexual desire — before our very eyes.” Robert Reid, The Record
