    • found: Wikipedia, Oct. 7, 2014(Henry V is a history play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in approximately 1599; In the First Quarto text, it was entitled The Cronicle History of Henry the fift, which became The Life of Henry the Fifth in the First Folio text; a tradition, impossible to verify, holds that Henry V was the first play performed at the new Globe Theatre in the spring of 1599; In 1600 the first printed text states that the play had been played "sundry times." The earliest performance for which an exact date is known, however, occurred on 7 January 1605, at Court; have been three major film adaptations: by and starring Laurence Olivier in 1944; by and starring Kenneth Branagh in 1989; starring Tom Hiddleston, made by the BBC in 2012 as part of The Hollow Crown series; in 2004, post-modern choreographer David Gordon created a dance-theatre version of the play called Dancing Henry Five, which mixed William Walton's music written for the Olivier film, recorded speeches from the film itself and by Christopher Plummer, and commentary written by Gordon)
