South Australian Premiere

One of the most highly regarded ensembles in Europe; Gabrieli Consort & Players are synonymous with period music at its finest. Led by celebrated Renaissance and Baroque musician Paul McCreesh.

King Arthur is the great patriotic opera of the seventeenth century depicting the battles between King Arthur’s Britons and Saxons. Full of brilliant dance music and beautiful songs, this 1691 setting of John Dryden poetry includes the justly famous Fairest Isle and the great “frost scene” in one of Purcell’s most vivid and imaginative scores.

King Arthur is a semi-opera combining dance, song, prose and spectacular stage effects.

McCreesh and the Gabrieli's prove the power of period practice. Opera Today
