Henry VIII

Director-producer Pierre Jourdan stages this memorable performance of French composer Camille Saint-Saens's most successful opera, "Henry VII," filmed live at France's Theatre Imperial de Compiegne. Set in pre-Elizabethan England, the piece traces the Tudor king's tempestuous marriages to Catherine of Aragon and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, drawing its drama from the jealously that erupts between them.
