Farinelli and the King is based on the true story of Spanish monarch Philippe V, who is on the verge of going completely mad but is rescued by the voice of countertenor Farinelli. The singer and the king forge a bond, and Farinelli must decide if he wants to return to his legion of adoring fans or spend his days entertaining one man. The show comes to Broadway after sold-out runs at Shakespeare’s Globe and London’s West End. Oscar and Tony winner Mark Rylance stars alongside countertenor Iestyn Davies; John Dove directs.
