Acclaimed director Peter Sellars has devised this vibrant production in which the rich and transcendent score of Purcell’s final unfinished opera, The Indian Queen at English National Opera is reworked around a new text and includes of a number of Purcell’s most ravishing religious anthems.

The production is a spectacle of music, theatre, dance, literature and visual art and features stunning set designs from LA-based graffiti artist, Gronk.

This new retelling recounts the initial confrontation between Europeans and the Mayans of the New World through a personal account from the female perspective, which Sellars has based on The Lost Chronicles of Terra Firma by Nicaraguan author Rosario Aguilar.

 

Baroque specialist Laurence Cummings leads the musical team, artistic director of major early music festivals in Britain and Germany. With an integral contribution from the ENO Chorus, the cast includes the exceptional young soprano Julia Bullock, for whom Sellars created the role, and leading British lyric soprano Lucy Crowe.

 

The Indian Queen is sung and surtitled in English.
