How true to Shakespeare is it?
20 March 2002 | by KukDairySee all my reviews

About 29 minutes into the second tape, the video play deviated from the written play somewhat. For the video compared to 4:14:119, 4:14:121, and 4:14:133, Antony calls not Diomed but another name--probably Sileucus. Also the actor of Sileucus was used, so it seems that this "error" was more than just mis-speaking by Timothy Dolton. I found this alteration peculiar as well as distracting. The change in the video play shook my confidence in an otherwise impressive performance
