Antony and Cleopatra
Composer: Samuel Barber

Librettist: Franco Zeffirelli
Synopsis
Antony leaves Egypt and his mistress, the Egyptian queen Cleopatra. He returns to Rome and is pressed to marry Octavia, the sister of Caesar. When Antony chooses Cleopatra instead, Caesar declares war and defeats Antony. Antony, hearing that Cleopatra has died with his name on her lips, falls on Eros's sword. An attendant to Cleopatra enters and informs Antony that the queen is still alive. As he dies from his wound, he begs to be taken to Cleopatra, where he bids her farewell. Cleopatra, realizing that she is a captive of Caesar, sends for a poisonous asp, concealed in a basket of figs. She and her two handmaidens die when bitten by the snake.
