A joint venture with the Royal Shakespeare Company. This anticipates the RSC’s winter London Season at the Barbican, ROME MMXVII, comprising four of Shakespeare’s most gripping plays: Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Antony & Cleopatra and Titus Andronicus.

Gregory Doran, (Artistic Director, RSC), discusses the role of the Roman poet Ovid in Shakespeare’s work. He is in conversation with Shakespeare historian, Dr Jonathan Bate, (Oxford University) and Dr Ross Thomas, (curator, Department of Greece and Rome, British Museum). They are joined by RSC actors presenting passages from Shakespeare which use Ovid as a source.
