Farinelli and the King

Show Closed

About this show

King Philippe V of Spain (Mark Rylance) lies awake in his chamber, plagued by insomnia. The queen, desperate for a cure, hears of Farinelli — a castrato with a voice so divine that it can captivate all who hear it. Astonished when Farinelli sings, Philippe begs him to stay. But will Farinelli, one of the greatest celebrities of his time, choose a life of solitude over fame and fortune in the opera houses of Europe?
