Purcell Dido & Aeneas
Pergolesi Stabat Mater
Director Christopher Monks
The incredible voices of countertenor William Towers and soprano Elizabeth Adams, bring to life Pergolesi’s masterpiece, Stabat Mater. Demonstrating baroque music at its finest and most intense, this provides a fitting partner to the excitement of Henry Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas.
Dido & Aeneas has become a work at the heart of the British musical heritage. In a highly emotionally charged and entertaining performance, the epic tragedy of a queen, a soldier and an illicit love is told through a rich array of music.
Performed with minimal staging, Armonico Consort’s beautifully tender and entertaining rendition of this incredible opera has delighted audiences across Europe, earning spectacular five star reviews from the national press.
