The arena was magically transformed into a scintillating medley of characters, straight from the pages of popular works of Shakespeare. The scenes of a love smitten Olivia, a vengeful Mark Antony, the confident yet vulnerable Julius Caesar, the wise Portia et al – aided in no less measure by their co-actors, innovative props and even ingenious back ground music- made a thoroughly enjoyable time for the audience.
