Enjoy a great night out with the Queens of the Baroque!
About this Event

Featuring Purcell's Suite from 'The Fairy Queen' and Handel's 'The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba', we can't think of a better Baroque night out this June!

'The Fairy Queen' combines enchanting music and spoken dialogue to re-imagine Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream,' creating a captivating world of fairies, mortals, and mystical transformations.

Often performed during wedding ceremonies, 'The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba' comes from Handel's Opera 'Solomon' capturing the excitement of a lavish state visit of an exotic foreign Queen.

Programme to include:

Suite from 'The Fairy Queen' - Henry Purcell (1659 -1695)

Overture No. 1 In C Major, BWV 1066 - Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750)


The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba, from Solomon, HWV 67 - George Frideric Handel (1685 - 1759)

Overture (Suite) No. 2 In B Minor, BWV 1067 - Johann Sebastian Bach
