A love such as that between Cesar and Cleopatra was never so much on a knife’s edge. Literally. When Cleopatra was just about to reveal all at the end of the second act, the murderers were already on the move. Having been warned early, Cesar manages to escape, Cleopatra remains behind, in fear for the great Roman. In the end, her plans for power bear fruit, and she becomes queen of the desert state of Egypt.
