The events in "Henry IV" happen 20 years before the action onstage, when a young aristocrat, taken away by his acting talent, suffers and accident during a carnival. He wakes up next day fully convinced that he is Henry IV, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, whose life was marked by a series of conflicts with the Pope, and who is closely linked to the legendary Road to Canossa. Has he really gone mad or is he pretending? If he is mad, why does everyone around him participate in this madness? If this is just a game, how can it be so real? Who can clearly say where does normality end and madness begin?
