Blow Venus and Adonis

The Historical Performance and Vocal Departments collaborate in a semi-staged performance of a masterpiece of the 17th century, directed by Margaret Faultless, Michael Chance and Mary Collins (dance). John Blow’s masque Venus and Adonis rivals Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas in its exquisite treatment of character and drama, and Ovid’s story of transformation is brilliantly set to music.
