An English Garden: Music From the Age of Shakespeare


  • Folger Shakespeare Theater (map)

As the arts and culture flourished in Shakespeare’s England, musical life blossomed as well. Popular ballads and art songs from the theatre—some associated with Shakespeare and his company and some from later works from the stage—are paired in a concert with lively instrumental pieces, fit for nobles and groundlings alike.  With fiddles, viol, lute, cittern, winds, and soprano Emily Noël.
