New York Continue Collective: Passing Judgement: Opera, Semi-Opera, and Ballad Opera in Restoration England
The concert is drawn from 120 years of English musical drama, and includes excerpts from works by Henry and Daniel Purcell, John Eccles, and John Gay. The staged performance features our singers, accompanied by the usual large continuo contingent of lutes, theorbos, gambas, guitars, and harps, plus our string band. Directed by Grant Herreid, and fully staged by Paul Shipper. FREE (donations welcome).
