Coriolanus – Stratford Festival On Film
The Stratford Festival’s “riveting” and “exhilarating” (The New York Times) production of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, directed by genre-defying theatre artist Robert Lepage, has been called “the show of the decade … a landmark production for the Stratford Festival. Maybe for William Shakespeare, too” (The Globe and Mail), and “the greatest contemporary staging of this play that I have ever seen” (Chicago Tribune). The production stars André Sills, “a magnetic and imposing actor” (The New York Times), with a stellar cast delivering “performances that send shivers down the spine” (The Globe and Mail). Lepage takes the story of the rise and fall of a legendary general who must face off against the angry Roman mob and infuses it with the energy of Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring.
