Synopsis 1604. Venice. It is the first day of carnival. In the reception hall of the most important theatre in the city, Compagnia della Molora, the last theatrical association in Venice is ready to welcome the public with jokes and music, marking the start of the most eagerly awaited celebration of them all: the election of the king of carnival. Each year a member of the public is chosen as the claimant to the crown and this year, and in spite of himself the person chosen is from London and his name is William Shakespeare.
The comedians stage a story at the crossroads of which the English visitor will be the protagonist of a story that tradition sees repeated each year: the fairy tale of the mad king. Will Shakespeare be able to become the new king of carnival in Venice in the year 1604? With the theatrical traditions of the Venetian momarìe and the English masques as its starting point, the spectator will be immersed in an original opera, the music and narration of which create a totally new Venetian celebration.
