Live From Shakespeare's GlobeStreaming Video - 2013
Henry V, Shakespeare's statement on the turbulence of war and the art of peace, tells the story of Henry's campaign to recapture English possessions in France. But the ambitions of the charismatic king are challenged by a host of vivid characters caught up in the real horrors of war. The play, which opened the new Globe Theatre in 1599 with a call to the audience to visualize the action using their "imaginary forces," celebrates the power of language to summon into life ships and battlefields, pubs and courts within the "wooden O" of the stage and beyond. This production of Henry V was filmed at Shakespeare's Globe and features Jamie Parker in a reprise of his role as King Henry V.
