Sound Affairs presents

The Tempest

Telling the story of Shakespeare’s play of magic and theatrical illusion, through musical settings from the baroque to the contemporary, this new production from Sound Affairs marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The music is drawn from a number of sources, including pieces by Matthew Locke (1667), Henry Purcell (1674), and Thomas Linley (1777) as well as more recent interpretations by Michael Nyman (from the film Prospero’s Books, 1991) and composer Charlie Barber. The music is accompanied by magic lantern images provided by visual artist Andrew Bolton.

The musicians include viola da gamba players Sam Stadlen (Fretwork) and Ibrahim Aziz (Rose Consort of Viols) as well as countertenor Matthew Venner (Orlando Consort), and harpsichordist Jane Chapman, performing with an ensemble featuring Nicola Barbagli (baroque oboe), Martyn Sanderson (sackbut) and Jan Zahourek (violone).
