António e Cleopatra

The setting of António e Cleopatra has the simplicity and dynamics to metamorphose according to the unfolding of the dramaturgy. Assuming the duality of a fragile balance, between Rome and Egypt, the passage of time day-night, or the season Summer-Winter. The reality or our projection on it.
