About This Event

Austrian soprano Anna Prohaska joins Italy’s leading early music ensemble for a programme that takes inspiration from two great queens, Cleopatra and Dido, who proved endlessly fascinating to Baroque composers. Operatic arias are framed by some of the period’s most vital instrumental works.
