I MEAN TO BE A TERROR TO THE WORLD

A portrait of absolute power at its most charismatic and violent, Tamburlaine was one of the first big hits of the English stage.

Tamburlaine is a poor shepherd who rises to power to live out his blood-soaked fantasy of conquering the world. His extravagant savagery shows what horror can result when unlimited political libido is let loose upon the world.

Michael Boyd returns to the RSC to direct this ambitious epic.

Please note matinee performances of Tamburlaine will have the earlier start time of 1pm, with evening performances at 7pm.
