Adèle Charvet, mezzo-soprano

An all-Purcell program with a first half comprising highlights from "The Fairy Queen" (and maybe other Purcell operas), and second half a dramatic concert version of "Dido and Aeneas".

29 performers (orchestra and singers), conducted by
Paul Agnew and featuring mezzo-soprano Adèle Charvet
(click here for her bio in English).

“Thrillingly emphatic…the mood, unbroken by applause until the end, was rapt.”

New York Times


“Astonishingly beautiful…wonderful sensuousness of tone and rhythmic precision.”

The Guardian


“Les Arts Florissants spread enjoyment as well as enlightenment in abundance.”

The Arts


“For decades [Les Arts Florissants] have been fulfilling the task of any truly important cultural institution: opening up new worlds of beauty and excitement, both emotional and intellectual.”

New York Times
