CAESAR MAXIMUS, 2018

Adapted from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
by Nick Medina in collaboration with Ava Roy

WHERE

San Francisco’s Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park provides the stage for CAESAR MAXIMUS, We Players’ new circus and opera infused adaptation of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

WHAT

Influenced by the Gilded Age, we explore a Roman Republic corrupted by machine politics and old money. Incorporating the nineteenth century popular entertainments of Opera and Circus, this multi-disciplinary, site-integrated production explores power, grief, and popular action. Inspired by the bloody history of civil unrest, the piece leans into the blind fury of a righteously angry mob and opens up Shakespeare’s greatest political parable for our own tumultuous time.
