The Cleopatra Costume on Stage and in Film

In seven richly annotated pages, C. David Claudon provides a thorough look at the clothing of fictional Cleopatras. From Shakespeare's original all-male production of "Antony and Cleopatra" to Sarah Bernhardt's 19th-century staging of Victorien Sardou's "Cleopatra" to Elizabeth Taylor's spectacular turn as the Queen of the Nile in 1963, Claudon illustrates how actresses and costumer designers have dressed the character in ways "that say more about their own time period than that of Cleopatra's." Included in this site is a complete list of famous Cleopatras on stage, film, and TV from 1606 to the present day.
