The Miracle Players, have been spoofing the Emperors of Rome for eight years now - and they're back this summer (2006) for their very tongue-in-cheek, yet informative plays in English.

They re-enact the lives of Rome's most famous Emperors at the most fitting outdoor setting at the Roman Forum - Foro Romano.

Augustus may have ruled the world but did his wife rule him? Tiberius, the sulky Emperor who lived in isolation in Capri. Caligula, decide for yourself if making his horse a senator was the wackiest thing he did (we don't think so). Claudius, were his relatives right in saying the things they did about him? Nero, who at sixteen became the master of the whole known world. Well, what would you have done in his shoes?

Based on the historical accounts by Suetonius, Cassius Dio, Tacitus and others this true tale is given a contemporary voice in the heart of the ancient Roman Capital. The play is suitable for all ages.

The Emperors of Rome will be performed every Friday at 7:30 PM (prompt) at the Roman Forum from June 16 to August 11, 2006. Entrance is free (although tips are welcomed!) and you do not need tickets or reservations.

Busses to Piazza Venezia: 64, 70, 170, 492, 175, 40, 63, 95, 85, 628, 87, 715, 716, 60, 44, 81, 117, 119, 62, walk toward the coliseum and turn right.
Metro B to Colosseo, walk down Via dei Fori Imperiali toward Piazza Venezia and turn left before the piazza.
