BarokOpera Amsterdam speelt: Queen Mary

Centred around English Composer to the Royal Court Henry Purcell and the queen he served: Queen Mary. While wars rage across Europe, the story of the queen and her consort King William III is played through a selection from Purcell’s music: birthday odes, the Fairy Queen and King Arthur. Stirring music for weddings and anniversaries, powerful trumpets and funeral music also fill the space in this exceptional show.
