A Weekend In Mantova
The city of Mantua, past and present, is full of shadows and whispers. There are secrets everywhere, intrigues and plots, about marriage, about music, about power, because Henry VIII of England is in town.
Against the sounds of the modern city of Mantova, poet, musician and dramatist Michelene Wandor has created a drama-documentary that mixes Renaissance fact with imaginative speculation. With Greg Hicks as Henry VIII and Emily Woof as Isabella d'Este.
Producer Piers Plowright
