The climax of a tragedy is marked as the turning point for the tragic hero. Brutus is the tragic hero and everything is going well for him until Antony speaks. Brutus's goal or desire is to save Rome from a tyrant and restore the republic. The climax is Antony's speech because it causes Rome to fall into chaos and everything afterward is downhill for Brutus. The play is about Brutus, not Cassius.

Cassius’s death (V.iii), upon ordering his servant, Pindarus, to stab him, marks the point at which it becomes clear that the murdered Caesar has been avenged, and that Cassius, Brutus, and the other conspirators have lost in their attempt to keep Rome a republic rather than an empire. Ironically, the conspirators’ defeat is not yet as certain as Cassius believes, but his death helps bring about defeat for his side.
