Eugene Sirotkine returns for Pequot Library's third concert, this time as conductor of a choral and instrumental ensemble with outstanding soloists to present a program of music written for the English theatre. The music is by Henry Purcell, the most important of all English composers, and lyrics by his contemporaries including Dryden, Blow, Tate and D’Urfey. This will be a magical concert of delightful music, sometimes saucy, sometimes deeply emotional, always beautiful.

The Program: Selections from: King Arthur; Dido and Aeneas; The Fairy Queen; Amphitryon; Oedipus; and others...

The Musicians: Soloists, instrumental ensemble & chamber chorus conducted by Eugene Sirotkine
