King Arthur

Purcells theatermagie


MAfestival defies Brexit and opens with a citytrip back to 17th century London, where King Arthur, Henry Purcell’s most celebrated dramatic opera, was created. In the libretto, rival kings Arthur and Oswald do battle, assisted by assorted magicians and spirits – on land, sea and in the air. Vox Luminis, together with narrator Simon Robson, bring Purcell’s magic world to life.
