Aquila Theatre’s striking new production of Shakespeare’s political thriller, Julius Caesar, bursts into life with complex characters and powerful contemporary parallels. The fall and rise of Rome’s ruling class takes us on a journey into a world of conspiracy and betrayal. Fresh from success on the battlefield, a triumphant Caesar returns to Rome a virtual dictator. Brutus, Cassius, and like-minded senators decide his undemocratic power grab must be stopped. The great Caesar must be assassinated.
One of the foremost producers of classical theater in the United States, Aquila visits 50-60 cities annually with a program of two plays, workshops, and educational programming. The company has been awarded numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The National Endowment for the Humanities, the New York State Councils for the Arts and Humanities, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
