A new drama featuring Oscar and three-time Tony winner Mark Rylance, Farinelli and the King comes to Broadway following sold-out runs at the Shakespeare’s Globe and on London’s West End.

Why See the Show

'Farinelli and the King'is inspired by the true story of King Philippe V of Spain and his return to sanity following a brief spell of madness. The show is presented in the signature style of Shakespearean drama, i.e, with traditional baroque instruments performed live in a gallery above the stage and the tale being told by candlelight. Relive the true story of the Spanish King and discover a timeless story of regality, insanity and the power of music.

Plot Synopsis

King Philippe V, also called Rylance, is a Spanish king on the edge of madness. His lost mind is a bane for the entire kingdom. Upon hearing the voice of world-renowned castrato, Farinelli, King Philippe seems to start his ascent into sanity. The relationship between the king and the castrato is at an all time high, but Farinelli has a tough choice to make - should he return to the hordes of fans outside the castle walls, or forever perform for just the King?

Critics Reviews

  • “"A profoundly funny and haunting meditation on melancholy and the therapeutic powers of music…” - The Independent
