Purcell and Handel shared the Restoration theatre’s fascination with classical history and Elizabethan poets. Such a fascination endures to the present day, and to finish the year-long Shakespeare 400 celebrations, Shanghai Grand Theatre invites the renowned baroque ensemble The English Concert to present a rare program featuring music inspired by 'The Bard'. In the guise of an Elizabethan masque, Purcell’s The Fairy Queen is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Giulio Cesare in Egitto, a fashionable new Italian opera by Handel, also features in their tribute.
