'Lechery, lechery, still wars and lechery: nothing
else holds fashion'
Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested, and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences.
Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding in battle.
Troilus and Cressida will be broadcast live from Stratford-upon-Avon to cinemas on 14 November.
