Oscar and three-time Tony winner Mark Rylance, following his acclaimed performance in the hit film Dunkirk, 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.
Written by Claire van Kampen and directed by John Dove, it tells the true story of Philippe V (Rylance), a Spanish monarch on the brink of madness. He finds unexpected solace in the voice of world-renowned castrato Farinelli, a role brought to life by two esteemed performers – West End actor Sam Crane and countertenor Iestyn Davies.
