The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare's most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare's gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare's brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

Capturing the essence of this brief but momentous period in modern musical history, they perform the best of "Hendrix" and "Cream" material, with the energy and virtuosity that is at the heart of this incredible music.
