The story begins with Queen Cleopatra brought back to life to recount her full story through flashbacks. She starts speaking about the foundation of Alexandria by Alexander the Great and continues up to the Ptolemaic Reign. She then moves to her own story—from struggling to rule Egypt to meeting Julius Caesar at the famous “carpet” incident, followed by meeting Mark Anthony and recounting his battle with Octavius, then ending with the last scene of her suicide. Presented in an interesting dramatic frame, the storytelling is accompanied by an augmented reality display to enrich the audience’s experience.
