Julius Caesar

Synopsis
Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.

Spoken in Shakespearean English with English subtitles, this performance was recorded live at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2017. This DVD is the second instalment of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Roman Tetralogy.
