Farinelli and the King

by Claire van Kampen

Following his acclaimed performance in the hit film Dunkirk, Oscar and three-time Tony winner Mark Rylance returns to the stage in Farinelli and the King. This captivating new play arrives on Broadway after sold-out runs at Shakespeare’s Globe and on London’s West End.

It tells the true story of Philippe V (Rylance), a Spanish monarch on the brink of madness.
