The Royal Hunt of the Sun
- by Peter Shaffer
- directed by Ian Frank
16th Century Peru. In this epic adventure, Francisco Pizarro leads 168 Spaniards to conquer 8,000 Incan soldiers in the name of gold and religion. When the Spaniards capture Atahualpa, King of the Incas, a high-stakes bargain is made, and all notions of chivalry and faith are questioned. This quest for truth and immortality features pageantry and music in an imaginative look at history.
