Henry Purcell „King Arthur“ - Semi-Opera nach dem Schauspiel von John Dryden

Henry Purcell was the most original and active composer of his time. With „King Arthur or The British Worthy“, which premiered in 1691, he paid homage to the English myth par excellence and created one of the most dazzling works of musical theater. In this English opera specialty of a 'semi-opera', acting and music, spectacle and drama intermingle with each other in the most brilliant way. The song „Fairest isle“ from it became so popular that it became England's secret national anthem. In it, the British kingdom, ruled by Venus, is transformed into the fairest island in the world. The performance of Akamus with us also guarantees one thing: royal pleasure!
