Baroque arias by H. Purcell and J. Playford, traditional music from the British Isles

Axelle Verner, mezzo soprano
Reynier Guerrero and Florian Verhaegen, violins
Aude Walker-Viry, cello
Franck-Emmanuel Comte, harpsichord and musical direction

On stage:
1 soloist, 4 instrumentalists

At Jacques Chambon and Frank Pitiot’side, a new show is on its way ! It will take us to the discovery of a fantastic island where the spells of a magician magician bewitch the inhabitants and castaways. For this journey following Ulysse, Franck-Emmanuel Comte has imagined a sound universe between traditional music of the British Isles and Purcell’s work. From ground basses of the Orpheus Britannicus to the popular tunes of London's underbelly, this ballad-like concert is placed under the sign of fantasy. Tunes, jiggs and airs thus take us on a journey from the mists of Ireland to Shakespeare's Globe theater with, as our guide, the warm and sensual voice of Axelle Verner, our charismatic mezzo-soprano.

Come all ! Strike the viol !
