Ian Page and Classical Opera are back with a concert which examines the 18th century's fascination with Ovid and his Metamophoses. The group will be performing Dittersdorf's symphony based on the rescue of Andromeda by Perseus, plus music from Gluck's opera Orfeo et Euridice, Haydn's Philemon et Baucis (actually an opera for marionettes) and Mozart's first opera Apollo et Hyacinthus. Performers include counter-tenor Christopher Ainslie, soprano Anna Devin and tenor Benjamin Hulett. The concert takes place on Monday 20 May at the Wigmore Hall. Further information from the Wigmore Hall website.
