Merchant of Venice: RSC, Blu-ray (2015)
Filmed live in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in 2015
Polly Findlay directs Shakespeare's uncompromising play with Makram J. Khoury, one of the most celebrated actors in Israel, in his RSC debut as Shylock. The cast also includes Patsy Ferran as Portia and Jamie Ballard as Antonio.
In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all - as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made.When the gold is flowing all is well - but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.
The Blu-ray includes a director’s commentary with Polly Findlay and Assistant Director Oscar Toeman.
