Notes
"The monotone starkness of Stratford is to be replaced by a uniform black, against which the action in Rome and Egypt, played without fanfares and scene changes, is given only lighting for contrast; the costumes remain almost brutally functional models of robe and uniform." Richard Ingram, The Guardian, (2 April 83).
