Notes

Can a Roman emperor forgive a woman who either wants to marry him or murder him? And can he pardon the would-be assassin who's supposedly his best friend? Find out in this spellbinding Sir David McVicar production that got rave reviews at France's Aix-en-Provence Festival. A highlight of the prestigious 2011 Aix-en-Provence Festival, this production is filled with theatrical urgency and fire. “McVicar’s direction is characteristically sharp, adding psychological complexity and bringing the drama to life.” The Telegraph, London
