The Patient Horse and the Dutiful Donkey
Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s interactive music-making session for ages two to five introduces Telemann’s noble steed.

A master of musical storytelling, Telemann guides us through Don Quichotte’s wild and wacky escapades.

On this adventure, the Orchestra creates a high-brow horse and a common donkey. Come and listen to what they sound like!

These interactive OAE Tots concerts have lots of action and activity to captivate the youngest music-lovers.

You can also meet the players and the instruments in the foyer after the performance.

What wins – love or duty?

Berenice is Queen of Palestine, set to marry the Roman Emperor Titus. But a change of political weather at home makes it impossible for the Emperor to marry a foreign queen. What wins out – love or duty?

Haydn turned this story into Scena de Berenice, a fabulous concert aria (classical music’s equivalent of the short story) told from the Queen’s perspective. As political wheels keep turning, how does she hold her own in increasingly hostile corridors of power?

A packed programme also explores Mozart’s great operas about power, La Clemenza di Tito.

Mezzo-soprano Stephanie d’Oustrac sings Berenice, while we’re joined once again by Ádám Fischer, one of the leading interpreters of Haydn’s music operating today.
