As Nyon, the town itself was founded by Julius Caesar this is certainly an appropriate play to watch! Synopsis below provided by the ADGE. Tickets here.
Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is the greatest political thriller ever written. In a world of Trump, Brexit and the rise of the populist Right, this is the classical play for our time. But it is also an action-packed thriller that moves with breathless pace as the audience is propelled from ancient Rome to the battlefield of Philippi and the mob is manipulated by emotion and fine words to turn from decent citizens to bestial killers. The setting is historical, the music a powerful blend of live and recorded cello, song, trumpet and percussion. The poetry is sublime and the daggers sharp.
