Fundación Siglo de Oro presents Rakatá in
Henry VIII / Enrique VIII
By William Shakespeare
Adaptation by José Padilla, Rafael Díez Labín, and Ernesto Arias
Directed By Ernesto Arias
In 1533, the Spanish were enraged by Catherine de Aragon's divorce from
Henry VIII. Eighty years later, Shakespeare engaged with the subject in
his last play. Now four hundred years later, Rakatá, Madrid's premier
classical company, re-imagines this play from a Spanish perspective,
with the thrilling clarity they bring to their productions of Spanish
Golden Age work. Don't miss what The Guardian UK
calls "a supremely accomplished retelling of this most notorious episode in English history." In Spanish with English captions. Support for Shakespeare at The Broad Stage is generously provided by Linda and Michael Keston.
