This is the first new, full-scale edition of Cymbeline in 37 years.

One of Shakespeare’s final works, Cymbeline uses virtuoso theatrical and poetic means to dramatize a story of marriage imperiled by mistrust and painfully rebuilt in the context of international conflict.

Roger Warren’s commentary emphasizes the play’s theatrical impact and pays close attention to its complex, evocative language.

William Shakespeare – Antony & Cleopatra
Frances Barber and David Harewood star in Shakespeare’s towering tale of great love, political intrigue and tragedy.

BBC radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.

Antony & Cleopatra is an intense love story, exploring the constant conflict between duty and emotion with characters so charismatic they continue to fascinate after 2,000 years. Shakespeare achieved some of his most beautiful poetry in this play, and the richness of the language makes it perfect for audio.

The play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre, with specially composed music.

Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.
