Excellent analysis. I agree almost 100%. I thought Ralph Fiennes made some bold and intriguing choices ... did I detect a subtext of homoeroticism or was I just tired? Very entertaining performance that served the character well. Antony is a man of voracious appetites. At first, I was annoyed by Sophie O ... she seemed to be declaiming rather than speaking, and I generally dislike that type of performance. But by the middle of Act I, she started to win me over ... the grandiosity was the character, not the actress ... and, ultimately, I thought she was pretty brilliant. Supporting cast was fine, especially the actor who played Enobarbus. So glad I had the opportunity to see this. I think I would have loved it live, and if it were still playing next time I went to London, or if it came to NYC, I’d definitely see it in person.
