A great warrior-turned-politician is despised by his people. And the feeling is mutual.

A landmark project with the Festival reveals the age‑old tensions that tear at the heart of democracy.

Director Robert Lepage’s signature high-tech, cinematic storytelling frames superb acting by a veteran Stratford cast, led by André Sills in the title role. A mesmerizing critique of leadership and our media-obsessed present, this landmark production will whet the appetites of old and new theater-goers alike.
