A much discussed production of Henry V, directed by Peter Zadek, is presented with the title Henry the Hero at the Theater der Freien Hansestadt in Bremen. Zadek declared that he meant to read the text in light of the myth of the warrior hero, by evoking more recent German experiences. The programme was illustrated by portraits of military leaders from Julius Caesar to Gengis Kahn but also by photographs of Goering, Himmler and Hitler.
