FOLLOWING THE RECOMMENDATION FROM THE UK GOVERNMENT REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) ON MARCH 16, THE PERFORMANCE AT THAXTED FESTIVAL ON 26 JUNE WILL NO LONGER BE GOING AHEAD.
The incredible voices of William Towers countertenor, and Elizabeth Adams soprano, bring to life Pergolesi’s masterpiece, Stabat Mater. Demonstrating Baroque music at its finest, this provides a fitting partner to the excitement of Henry Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas.
Dido & Aeneas has become a work at the heart of the British musical heritage. In a highly emotionally charged and entertaining performance, the epic tragedy of a queen, a soldier and an illicit love is told through a rich array of music.
Performed with minimal staging, Armonico Consort’s beautifully tender and entertaining rendition of this incredible opera has delighted audiences across Europe, earning spectacular five star reviews from the national press.
