About this show

Visionary director Ivo van Hove transforms the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House into a modern-day Roman amphitheater with this interactive, hyper-modern take on Shakespeare's powerful trilogy about the use and abuse of power: Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, and Coriolanus. Staged as a single immersive experience, van Hove's production turns audience members into the citizens of Rome, encouraging them to grab a drink during the action at the on-stage bar, push through the crowd to hear Marc Antony defend Caesar, or take it all in on giant video screens and tickertape news feeds.
