Shakespeare’s classic story of tyranny, power, corruption, and betrayal in ancient Rome.
After defeating Pompey, Julius Caesar arrives home a triumphant conqueror, but the senators are uneasy about Caesar’s sudden expansion of power and so conspire to overthrow their leader. The power vacuum created, however, by Caesar’s demise is a larger threat to Rome than the senators bargained for.
