Henry V in France
Chris is composer and musical director for Antic Disposition’s production of Henry V.
Marking both the company’s 10th anniversary and the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt, award-winning British theatre company Antic Disposition bring Shakespeare’s most stirring history play to Périgord and Quercy in a bold new production.
England’s idealistic army marches to war, certain of a swift and glorious victory. France proudly rallies to defend her borders from invasion. But as nations clash, it is the common soldiers who pay the ultimate price in the bloody mud of the battlefield.
Performed in English “in this best garden of the world, our fertile France”, Henry V is an accessible and fast-paced evening of entertainment, celebrating the complex historical relationship between our two nations – from the Hundred Years War to the Entente Cordiale.
