Dreams and imagination

Sun 04 Apr 2021 - 16:00 to 18:00
Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, Kasteelstraat 6, 3740 Bilzen

Through a miniature version of an old theatre you dive into the world of Henry Purcell. While Henry watches the spectacle as an aerial spirit, the singer opens the gates to the imagination. She takes you into dream images or 'masks' that Purcell created for the theatre. Shakespeare's Midsummer Night Dream and De Storm are not far away, King Arthur is present and Queen Mary's music can also be heard, until HUSH resounds and we are silenced.

An accordionist and a lutenist make Purcell's music sparkle in unique arrangements. With melodies and chords they accompany you on the unfathomable paths of a wonderful composer. A Belgian-Canadian team deploys all multimedia means to depict Henry's magical universe.

Zonzo Companie pulled you out of the closet to take you into a dream, a wonderful world for which Purcell wrote beautiful music.
