Opera Lafayette: John Blow's Venus and Adonis

Nov. 21, 23 at 7:00 p.m.

Opera Lafayette opens its 25th anniversary season featuring the 21st century’s next generation of leadership in early music and dance. These brilliant young artists present Venus and Adonis, the French-inspired chamber opera which prefigured Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.

In librettist Anne Kingsmill Finch’s version of this pastoral myth, Venus, the goddess of Love, encourages her lover Adonis to heed the call of the hunt, which he does only reluctantly. Created for the English court, where Venus was played by the king’s mistress and Cupid by their daughter, this ultimately tragic tale is interspersed with humorous scenes that poke fun of courtiers while extolling the virtues of shepherds and true love.
