Royal Shakespeare Company
This is one of Shakespeare’s most overtly political plays, the modern dress setting for Angus Jackson’s production emphasises the contemporary relevance of the themes explored in Coriolanus. This release completes the RSC’s tetralogy of Shakespeare’s Roman plays Julius Caesar, Titus Andronicus and Antony and Cleopatra, all released by Opus Arte.
‘As the culmination of an ambitious, thoughtfully realised season of some of Shakespeare’s less popular works, it
solidly earns its place in the RSC’s Roman canon.’ – Whatsonstage
‘It’s a production that’s built around artful clashes of violence and elegance.’ – Time Out
‘Coriolanus is an illuminating study of extremes and intransigence on both sides of the political divide. It’s a hefty,
occasionally unwieldy, beast of a play, but Angus Jackson’s modern-dress production steers a clear line through,
pinpointing key moments.’ – The Evening Standard
