|A Weekend In Mantova||19990124|
A drama-documentary devised and written by Michelene Wandor that centres on the city of Mantua (now Mantova), mixing Renaissance fact with imaginative speculation.
The city of Mantua, past and present, is full of shadows and whispers that run from the secret corners of the Gonzaga Palace, along the dark gardens, past Isabella d'Este's window, over the canal, into the Jewish quarter and beyond.
There are secrets everywhere, intrigues and plots, about marriage, about music, about power, because Henry VIII of ENGLAND is in town.
With Greg Hicks as Henry VIII, and Emily Woof as Isabella d'Este.
