Via a miniature version of an old theatre, we dive into the world of Henry Purcell. While Henry, as an air spirit, observes the spectacle, a singer opens the gates to the imagination. She whisks you away into dream images or ‘masques’ that Purcell created for the theatre. We hear echos of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest, King Arthur is present and we hear Queen Mary's music, until Hush reverberates and we are silenced.
