Instead it’s a ‘dramatick opera’, a bastardised version from 1674 re-worked for maximum appeal to Restoration audiences.

Internationally renowned lutenist Elizabeth Kenny is joined by Katy Watson, soprano, Sam Boden, tenor and Frazer Scott, bass and a group of musicians from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

They present this fascinating score, enhanced by dramatic interludes from the play, following their highly successful performances in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2015.
