Description

The Duke's authoritarian deputy, Angelo, is hell-bent on stamping out moral decay. He reactivates outdated Draconian laws and aims his arrogant crosshairs at a young man whose fiancée is pregnant, sentencing him to death. Angelo is sternly incorruptible—until he meets Isabela, a beautiful religious novice whose desirability arouses him. Flavored with live music by the mariachi band Las Colibri, Rauch's vigorous, modern production of Shakespeare’s tragicomedy reveals what can happen when sex, religion and politics collide.
