    Restoration Shakespeare

    A Musical Adaptation of The Tempest
    with Elizabeth Kenny (Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment)

    Why was Shakespeare's The Tempest 'made into an Opera' in the Restoration? Dare we perform it that way today? What are the practicalities as well as the morality of tampering with the Bard? Ahead of the evening performance of all the music from the 1674 Tempest production, join us for an exploration of the conflicting demands of text and music,
    and how they can be made to work together.
