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.
