Venus and Adonis: Baroque singing workshop at Hampton Court Palace
Saturday 1 September, 11.00-16.30
£25 (including refreshments and entry to the palace)

Enjoy a day of baroque music, as you learn to sing pieces from John Blow's Venus and Adonis, an early English opera from the 1680s. With lyrics said to be written by Anne Finch, a courtier of Charles II, its words are a poignant critique of the sexual mores of the King’s court. Led by Patrick Allies, conductor, singer and founder member of vocal ensemble Siglo de Oro, the day will end with the unique opportunity to perform to the public within the baroque half of Hampton Court Palace, designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
