In a morality tale, Racine tells the story of a classic Roman family feud. Britannicus and Nero will fight to know who will sit on their father’s throne. Stéphane Braunschweig's modern scenography highlights the timelessness of the Racinian tragedy and its political themes. A large, cold meeting room with a large white door replaces the ancient palaces, and the CEO of a large company occupies the seat of the Emperor of Rome. The relationships between the characters blend perfectly into this multinational atmosphere. An exciting political thriller, from root to bone and without pathos.
