Shakespeare and Purcell saw the London stage as a place for experiment, where cutting-edge music and drama brought theatre to life. Shakespeare’s Sonnets read by actor Sam West provide the inspiration for New York City-raised rapper Baba Israel, while Purcell’s ground basses supply the harmonic groove for O/Modernt’s late-night set.

Henry Purcell and his inimitable ground basses are the creative spark for a weekend of imaginative programmes directed by Hugo Ticciati at Wigmore Hall on 7th and 8th April 2018.
