Henry VIII | Rakatá

Los vicios de los hombres quedan grabados en bronce, sus virtudes se escriben en el agua

'Men's evil manners live in brass; their virtues we write in water.'

In 1533, the Spanish were enraged by Catherine of Aragon’s divorce from Henry VIII. Eighty years later, Shakespeare engaged with the subject in his last play. Now four hundred years later, Rakata, Madrid’s premier young classical company, re-imagine this play from a Spanish perspective, with the thrilling clarity they bring to their productions of Spanish Golden Age work.
