Shakespeareans-in-training

Here are some words from our very own Shakespeareans-in-training.
 

Antony and Cleopatra

Annie Yan and Esther Suen won tickets to the Bell Shakespeare production of Antony and Cleopatra last term. Here is what they have to say about the play.

By Annie Yan and Esther Suen (Year 10)
 
On the 25th of March, we went to the Sydney Opera Playhouse to view Bell Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra’s production. The play was set in a cozy, small and round stage which conveyed meaning through utilising sound, lighting, and special effects. We especially liked the sheer curtain that text was projected upon. Minimal costumes and staging were also used. However, because of this, it was somewhat difficult to keep up with the story, but this was made up for by the engaging and excellent performance from the actors. 

This play was quite interesting as it was a contemporary rendition yet still retained the traditional form and context. However due to our lack of knowledge about the play we were also lost at times but still got the general gist in the end.
We are always happy to accept student submissions. If you have anything you wish to share, please let your teacher know in class.
Keep warm, and keep on the literary awesomeness!

With best wishes,
