A story about a well-spoken Roman hero and a sultry Egyptian queen is transformed into a tale of hubris, manipulation, political maneuvering, imperialism, cruelty and compassion in the hands of William Shakespeare.
This summer, the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival takes on this layered tragedy during Shakespeare by the Sea XXVIII’s production of Antony & Cleopatra (or The Curse of Cleopatra) on July 12 – 15 and July 19 – 22 at the Seabreeze Amphitheatre in Carlin Park. A special twist in this year's production invites audience members to see Cleopatra as seeking revenge on those who maligned her throughout history.
Audience members are invited to bring their beach chair, blanket, picnic basket or enjoy food truck concessions. The gates open at 6:30 pm with performances starting at 8 pm.
