Caesar’s feast

Duration1 hour 40 minute

When Nero was born, his father exclaimed, “I don’t think anything produced by me and Agrippina could possibly be good for the state or the people.” This is the story of Seneca, Nero’s teacher, who dreamt of raising a teenager who would respect the Senate and the ancient laws of Rome. He hoped that Nero would grow into a kind-hearted leader and leave behind the cruel times of former Caesars. “Once you’ve tasted what it’s like to be a god, you’ll never stop.”
The play retains its relevance to this day and will endure forever because human nature never changes; it perpetually seeks ultimate power.
