    Saturday Jun 11th - The Indian Queen by Henry Purcell

    Vlad Smishkewyich presents The Indian Queen performed by The Sixteen under Harry Christophers. Based on Dryden’s play, Henry Purcell’s music from The Indian Queen deals with the conflict between Mexicans and Peruvians and principally with Queen Zempoalla. The Indian Queen is a classic story of love and war and, as with all good stories, things don’t go quite as planned for the eponymous Queen... (Picture by Molinavisuals)
