Prepare to be transported back to the early 6th Century, as we embark on a tale of medieval adventure and mysticism.
One of the greatest works of western music, Purcell’s operetta ‘King Arthur’ tells the story of King Arthur’s Britons as they battle the Saxons.
Led by Ross Cobb, narrated by Peter Cousens and performed on an orchestra of Australia’s best historically informed musicians. Performed in the open-air; bring a picnic rug or a chair, enjoy a drink from the bar whilst surrounded by the stunning sandstone Quadrangle of St Paul’s College.
