Enrique VIII y Catalina de Aragón

September 29 @ 7:30 pm
Schism of England actors

Adaptation by Margarita Galban and Lina Montalvo

Directed by Margarita Galban

The Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts and Bilingual Foundation for the Arts bring another exceptional classical theatre production from Spain’s Golden Age to Whittier.

One of Pedro Calderón’s most profound tragedies, The Schism of England, dramatizes the psychological downfall of Henry VIII (Enrique Octavo) whose sensual passion makes him vulnerable to the shrewd manipulation of his ambitious minister Wolsey (Volseo) and the seductive and no less ambitious Anne Boleyn (Ana Bolena). Both induce the monarch to break up his marriage with Catherine of Aragon. Although the divorce will contribute further to the rift in the Christian unity of Europe already begun by Luther, the play is however, not about love or religious issues but about perversion and abuse of power and illustrates how unchecked human passions lead not only to psychological and political upheaval but also death.

El Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts y La Fundación Bilingüe de las Artes nos brindan otra producción excepcional del Teatro Clásico de la era dorada de España.

BFA ha montado una de las más profundas tragedias escrita por Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Dramatiza la derrota sicológica de Enrique Octavo cuya pasión sensual lo hace vulnerable a las intrigas de su ambicioso ministro el Cardenal Wolsey (Volseo) y de la no menos ambiciosa Anne Boleyn (Ana Bolena). Ambos inducen al monarca romper con su matrimonio con Catalina de Aragón. Aunque el divorcio va a contribuir la ruptura en la unidad Cristiana de Europa, la obra no se trata de amor ni de asuntos religiosos sino de la perversión y abuso de poder, y nos hace ver como las pasiones humanas nos llevan no solo a la convulsión psicológica y política sino a la muerte.
