A Night for the King

A French Baroque Story of Love in Music and Dance

6. 8. 2019 | 19:30

The final gala concert of the 20th Summer Festivities of Early Music will be an homage to French Baroque opera with its masterly amalgamation of music and dance.

A Night for the King narrates a story of two lovers, performed by two exquisite vocal artists, Katherine Watson and Reinoud Van Mechelen.

The protagonists wander through fantastic lands whose inhabitants – here represented by solo dancers Anna Chirescuand Artur Zakirov – gloss on the fate of the vocalists.
