Farinelli and the KingWolf Hall actor Mark Rylance reprises the role of King Philippe V when Claire van Kampen's play Farinelli and the King transfers to the West End, transforming the Duke of York's Theatre into the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with candles, on-stage seating and baroque musical instruments. Featuring a selection of arias first sung by Farinelli in the 18th century, the drama unfolds in 1730s Spain where Queen Isabella Farnese implores the world famous castrato to sing for her husband, the anguished monarch Philip V of Spain, in the hope that Farinelli's heavenly voice will lift the king's depression and insomnia.

 

About Duke of York's Theatre

This West End theatre has more than its share of name changes. Originally called The Trafalgar in 1894, it became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V. During the late 1990s, the name was temporarily changed to The Royal Court Theatre. More about Duke of York's Theatre
