WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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."
