Summary

  • Based loosely upon the events following the death of the Roman emperor Vespasian in the 1st century, Bérénice is the story of a love triangle in which Emperor Titus and his friend Antiochus, King of Commagene, both fall in love with the Queen of Judea: Bérénice. This production by the incomparable La Comédie-Française dramatically captures the anguish and the intensity of Racine’s play—a play that marked both the young playwright’s ascendancy and the great Corneille’s decline. (French, 2 hours 46 minutes on 2 videocassettes)
