Farinelli and the King was an intriguing show. Witty dialogue sometimes hard to hear. Side seats had obstructed view of the stage. Interesting that the title character had to be protrayed by an actor and singer.

A stunning production brought to us from London. Mark Rylance heads a superb cast, the countertenor is spectacular. Stop reading and get tickets now - the final performance is March 25th.

The house is beautiful! Saw Farinelli and the King which was awesome. There was stage seating and a great musical element. Enjoyable. Good job by all!

Excellent production headed up with a wonderful performance by Mark Rylance who nails the role...captures the inner turmoil of Philippe well, has excellent personal synergy with Isabella. Clever use of the counter tenor to occupy the stage alongside Farinelli (as the manifestation of his voice)...More
