“The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.”
Julius Caesar endures as a provocative examination of personal responsibility against the backdrop of great political consequences. In a fast-paced adaptation both intimate and ruthless, the next generation will have the chance to ask how each of us must weigh the greater good against the advice of friends, the roar of public opinion, the strategic advantages, the personal costs, and the compass of our own hearts.
Presented by Asolo Rep and the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, the annual educational tour brings exciting 45-minute adaptations of classic literature to schools and community venues throughout the state of Florida. Shakespeare’s original language comes alive through energetic contemporary staging, performed by the talented young artists of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory.
