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.
