HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
The Bach Sinfonia: Purcell's King Arthur in Concert
Presented by Strathmore
Saturday, May 9, 2009 at 8:00 PM
In the Music Center at Strathmore
Enemies and enchantments abound in this 17th-century semi-opera for orchestra, chorus, soloists and narrator—a musical tale of love and war and magic.
Purcell's King Arthur is a robust large-scale work in five acts for soloists, chorus and orchestra. In this semi-opera, Arthur battles to unite Britain and to rescue his fiancé, Princess Emmeline, from the clutches of his arch-enemy, the Saxon King Oswald. Based on a libretto by John Dryden, King Arthur was first performed in 1691. The semi-opera, a genre unique to the late seventeenth century, features both music and spoken dialog throughout. Sinfonia's performance presents an adapted dramatic narration to tell this exciting tale alongside the superb musical entertainment. This performance marks the 350th anniversary of the composers' birth.
