One of the most worldwide well-respected and loved Shakespeare companies is back in Neuss this summer: Edward Hall created an unforgettable version of “Henry V“ for the debut in Neuss in 1997 and has now restaged the piece: enthralling, intoxicating and touching- the way it is supposed to be in this work about war and peace between England and France. It is a rhetorical masterpiece with 14 unbelievably talented actors whose soldiery abilities were trained by the British Army prior to the performance, according to Edward Hall's wishes.
Power-hungry clergy, highly treacherous nobility, the capture of Harfleuer, the battle of Agincourt, the English lessons of the French princess and most importantly, Henry's rhetoric: Shakespeare at his best. And all of this in the Wooden O, in the Globe, to which Shakespeare alludes in the prologue: „How can this cockpit hold the vasty fields of France?“.
