A Fine Version of The Tragic Drama
6 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

William Shakespeare's classic tragedy, Julius Caesar, has always been one of his lesser liked plays. It's predominantly an all male drama with only two supporting female characters like Calpurnia and Portia. It was still a male dominated world in Caesar's time where women are wives, nurses, maids, and mistresses. The BBC did a service in producing Shakespeare's plays faithfully to the word. I watch the English subtitles to get a better account of the story. The BBC has faithfully recreated the background scenes without much cost. There is no audience for a reaction or applause. The cast includes Charles in the title role. He is a fine Caesar. Richard Pasco and Keith Michell are also fine too. Unlike Shakespeare's other tragedies, this story is about politics, power, corruption, and greed.
