In a program of opera and concert, this season’s Barocktage festival at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is focused on two direct contemporaries: Alessandro Scarlatti and Henry Purcell both had a decisive influence on the music of the 17th century. Once again the Pierre Boulez Saal hosts several concerts in cooperation with the Staatsoper.

Jordi Savall and his Concert des Nations open the proceedings with incidental music inspired by the works of Shakespeare and excerpts from Purcell’s semi-opera The Fairy Queen, an adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
