5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dramatization of one of Shakespeare's best Sept. 6 2006
By B. Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have just finished listening to Antony and Cleopatra and cannot speak highly enough of this fine recording. The acting is as good or better than any of the stage productions I've seen and the scenes between Antony and Cleopatra crackle with sensuality (although I did wonder how they make the kissing sounds). This is the first of this series I've listened to, but I plan to go through the entire library if this is representative of the overall quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great dramatization with one little problem May 12 2013
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This set of three CDs contains a really great dramatization of Shakespeare's classic play, Antony and Cleopatra. Arkangel brought together a battery of great actors (including Ciaran Hinds(!) and David Burke), who really brought the story to life. My one and only complaint is that they story is produced straight out of the book - which means that there is very little introduction of the cast of characters or of the scenes. When you read the play, you see the scene described and the characters listed, and when you see the play performed you see the scenery and see the faces of the actors. But, in this purely audio play you have to get to know the characters from their voices alone, and sometimes it is a little hard to imagine where the action is actually taking place.

But, in spite of that little problem, I really did enjoy the play and had little problem following the broad outline of what was happening to whom and why. Yep, I found this to be a very enjoyable dramatization, and I do not hesitate to recommend it!

Maybe someone else will have better luck but when I downloaded this it was one blank page. It was free so I can't complain much. Just wanted to give a heads up to everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion and Power Politics (Arkangel Shakespeare) June 15 2007
By George R Dekle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think it was Aristotle who wrote that in order to have a tragedy you must have a truly heroic figure brought low by a single character flaw. Mark Antony, master of half the world, is brought low by his love for a conniving woman. Or at least that's the surface story. Beneath the surface lies the story of two people bound together by political expediency, military necessity, economic need, and passion. They shamelessly use and manipulate each other, but when all is said and done, they truly have passionate feelings for each other. I'm not sure you could really call it love. Whatever you call it, it serves as the core of a very good story that is part adventure, part romance, all tragedy.

Arkangel's production values are excellent. The sound quality is very good, the lines are well-spoken, and the plot is easy to follow even if you have never read the play.
3.0 out of 5 stars I expected much more Feb. 2 2014
By Jere Miles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had expected to find: Synopsis. Character analysis and motivation. Theme. Memorable lines. Other shortcuts to reading the whole thing. Instead it is a synopsis of each Act and is way too wordy to be consider a 'short-cut'. Not the Cliff Notes I remember for years ago.
