The Duke of Ferrara has lived a wild and unconventional life. An infamous womaniser, his only son, Federico, is a bastard whom he dreams will one day succeed him.
 
When his subjects demand that he marry and provide them with the stability of a legitimate heir, the proud and beautiful Cassandra, Duchess of Mantua, is sent to be his bride. But everything does not fall happily into place.
 
A passionate love develops - but not between the Duke and his Duchess - and, in a culture where honour is the highest virtue, there can be only one outcome.

Regarded as the greatest tragedy of the Spanish Golden Age and the finest play of de Vega, this elegant work set in the dangerous and glamorous world of Renaissance Italy is presented as part of the Spanish Golden Age season.
