Julius Caesar Directed by Arthur Nauzyciel

One of the greatest theatrical studies of tyranny, revolution, and civil war, Julius Caesar is a highly personal play — a breathless, gripping portrayal of friendships and alliances torn apart by political ambition and the intoxicating effects of power.

French director Arthur Nauzyciel revives his "visually stunning, musically moody, and unceasingly stylish" (The Boston Globe) production of Julius Caesar, first created for Boston's influential American Repertory Theater in a US election year, 10 years ago. Now artistic director of the Théâtre National de Bretagne, Nauzyciel highlights the continuing relevance of Shakespeare's great political tragedy—with costumes and design that evoke the era of JFK, a live jazz trio, and provocative staging that refocuses the action so that the tyranny unfolds as the dream of a minor character, Brutus' slave Lucius.


Julius Caesar's tour in the United States is supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, Institut français-Paris / Region Bretagne.
