Event description

Description

King Arthur

A semi-opera in five acts on a libretto of John Dryden

Concert Version

Purcell's King Arthur is one of the Baroque's true gems with a lasting success since its London premiere in 1691. The story tells of the confrontation between Arthur, the Christian Breton king and Oswald, the Pagan Saxon king. Assisted by their sorcerers, Merlin on the side of good and Osmond on the side of evil, they fight for supremacy over Brittany and for the heart of Emmeline, a blind young girl. The BCSD is thrilled to present this work with an all-star cast of musicians who will deliver one of Purcell's signature works with an unmistakable energy and virtuosity.

Soloists to include:

Jay Carter, Countertenor

Paul Max Tipton, Baritone
