John Blow’s Venus and Adonis
November 21 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This mise en espace production features music direction by Thomas Dunford and choreography by Julia Bengtsson. Mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre and bass-baritone Doug Williams return to Opera Lafayette’s stage in the title roles, and soprano Sarah Shafer makes her company debut as Cupid. Together with a chamber ensemble of instrumentalists, these brilliant young artists present the French-inspired work from the English court, which prefigured Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
