King Arthur - The British Worthy
In collaboration with a 10-strong cast of professional opera singers and actors and 12-piece chamber orchestra, Colliers Wood Chorus presents King Arthur - The British Worthy.

This epic, powerful drama, with music by Henry Purcell and text by John Dryden (1691), has been given a First World War setting, and will be performed on the three evenings leading up to, and the afternoon of, the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice. It is Community-led and funded by Colliers Wood Chorus and is a rare opportunity to see this English opera fully staged.

The production also represents the culmination of our 10th anniversary celebrations and a major fund-raising effort by the choir, which is particularly grateful for the support of local businesses The Charles Holden and Coffee in the Wood.

Britain has been invaded by the Saxons. As a military leader, Arthur must defeat his adversary Oswald; as a man and a lover, he must rescue his beloved Emmeline from Saxon abduction and enchantment. Alongside King Arthur's military and personal struggles, Merlin's powers of enchantment are pitted against the illusionist skills of the dastardly Saxon, Radwulf.
