Purcell’s semi-opera imagines war between a Mexican Indian Queen and an Inca king, a tale of tangled loyalties, unexpected identity and seemingly hopeless love. Expect exquisite instrumental music, stunning recitatives and vivid characters – Fame, Envy, a Conjurer to name a few – as things start to unravel for the Indian Queen… 

We set the scene for The Indian Queen with evocative Latin American Baroque music unearthed by Jeffrey during his visits to Mexico and Boliva.
