with Theatre of the Ayre

directed by Elizabeth Kenny

Elizabeth Kenny’s Theatre of the Ayre scored a critical hit in 2010 with its performances of John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, subsequently released by the Wigmore Hall Live label. This evening the ensemble is joined by three outstanding interpreters of French Baroque vocal music for an Advent programme of sacred and secular pieces by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, composer to the French dauphin and Molière’s Comédie-Française. The concert includes Charpentier’s pastorale Actéon and one of his grandest dramatic Christmastide motets.
