About this programme

Taking its cue from the 2022 Musika-Música festival theme of ‘Nature’, Arcangelo presents a triptych of suites composed for the English Restoration stage and in which ‘divine nature’ plays a leading role – from the enchanted realm of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in Purcell’s ‘The Fairy Queen’ to the pastoral pursuits of Venus and Adonis as portrayed by John Blow.
