HENRY VI PART I – HENRI SESTI, PRVI DEO
Performed in Serbian by the National Theatre Belgrade
(with subtitles in English)
Established in 1861, National Theatre in Belgrade began its life presenting opera and ballet, before adding drama to its repertoire from 1868. It now houses two venues for the performing arts. It has performed a number of Shakespeare’s works at the company’s home during its long history and makes its UK debut with this production.
King Henry V has died. For decades, England has been waging an unsuccessful war with France. As infighting blights the English troops, their armies gradually lose the cities and territories he won. Henry V’s young son is crowned King, but, in spite of his best efforts, his youth and inexperience prove no match for his enemies, both abroad and on his own soil.
