The Queens, Heroines and Ladykillers series continues with a programme that features the best of English and French baroque and which demonstrates how French musical styles became fashionable in England too. The programme includes music from French masters Lully and Rameau, which we defy you not to nod your head or tap your foot to. Also included is the devastating lament from Purcell’s mini operatic masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas. Fast rising star Jonathan Cohen conducts and the world-renowned mezzo-soprano (and regular OAE collaborator) Sarah Connolly is the soloist.
