"The atmosphere [Nauzyciel] creates is so hypnotically seductive that we find ourselves drawn into his dream of Caesar."—Boston Globe
Directed by Arthur Nauzyciel
French director Arthur Nauzyciel revives his "visually stunning, musically moody, and unceasingly stylish" (The Boston Globe) production of Julius Caesar, first created for Boston's influential American Repertory Theater in a US election year, 10 years ago. Now artistic director of the Théâtre National de Bretagne, Nauzyciel highlights the continuing relevance of Shakespeare's great political tragedy—with costumes and design that evoke the era of JFK, a live jazz trio, and provocative staging that refocuses the action so that the tyranny unfolds as the dream of a minor character, Brutus' slave Lucius.
Approximate run time: 3 hours and 30 minutes, with intermission.
