Venus and Adonis

Liefde en dood in John Blows masque


In John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, the love goddess resolutely sends her lover on a hunt – with disastrous consequences. Anne Finch’s libretto turns to gold in Blow’s expert hands: his score embodies the emerging, shamelessly varied opera style of the English Restoration period. This little gem is in good hands with Elizabeth Kenny and her Theatre of the Ayre.
