The Complete Shakespeare Experience    

The Tragedies

Among Shakespeare’s 10 tragedies are the timeless classics that have come to define the genre including Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Othello, and the tale of the world’s most famous lovers, Romeo and Juliet.

Woven into these tragic tales are themes that explore the most challenging of human experiences including the consequences of ambition and power, destiny and free will, familial obligations, gender roles, vengeance, duty, and responsibility.

Whether on an individual scale, such as in Romeo and Juliet, or on a global scale, such as in Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s tragedies demonstrate the impact the decisions we make have on our lives and those around us.
