Time Out London
September 27th, 2018

Sophie Okonedo is a magnificent Cleopatra to Ralph Fiennes’s jaded Antony in this rollicking political thriller.

The great merit of Simon Godwin's fast-moving, modern dress and hugely intelligent production in the vast space of the Olivier, is its extreme lucidity. A lot goes on, but we always understand its meaning and its emotional impact.

Simon Godwin's modern-dress version gives it a contemporary sheen, but also a more propulsive cinematic flow, too. As splendidly designed by Hildegard Bechtler, it is both truly epic and intimate, as required.

These are fine performances, rich in detail, full of passion’s tremulous desire, yet movingly tempered by the rue of middle age...Compassionate, politically astute and psychologically perceptive.

Simon Godwin directs a terrific and epic National Theatre production, filled with passion and delusion.

Okonedo is magical in the first half, and Fiennes dominates the second...But this interpretation is full of detail, intelligence and humanity.
