Kings & Rogues: Globe Theatre on Screen
Globe Theatre on Screen.
Henry lV - Parts l and ll Henry Vlll The Merry Wives of Windsor Rebellion and maturity run through Shakespeare's histories hike a single twisted thread, exemplified by the tearaway-turned-hero Hal and his forever adolescent associate Falstaff, who deserves and gets a comedy to himself in the Merry Wives of Windsor. Lives real and imagined, nobles and beggars, Tudor history and culture all spring to vivid life on the stage of The Globe Theatre in award-winning productions featuring many fine British actors and original music played by a pit-band of instruments true to the Elizabethan age.
Spoken in Shakespeare's English with English and German subtitles.
