Arcangelo at the BBC Proms, 13th August
We are very much looking forward to performing at The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as part of this year’s BBC Proms on 13th August. The Playhouse is utterly unmatched for the immediacy it allows performers to give to the audience, and there is certainly no better space to deliver a programme centred on Restoration music for the theatre.
The programme includes Shakespeare-inspired works by Purcell, Blow, Locke and Draghi, and features acclaimed Arcangelo soloists Katherine Watson (soprano), Samuel Boden (tenor) and Callum Thorpe (bass). There will be two performances, a matinee at 3pm (broadcast live on BBC Radio 3) and an evening performance at 8pm.
Booking opens on the BBC Proms website at 9am on the 24th of June, and on The Globe’s website on the 1st July. Tickets are expected to sell quickly, so do book via either of the Prom website links below, or via the box office (0845 401 5040) on the 24th.
