King Arthur a dramatick opera in five acts by Henry Purcell( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oeuvre hybride formée d'une pièce de théâtre et de sept tableaux musicaux, le King Arthur de Henry Purcell et John Dryden ne se laisse pas facilement cataloguer. L'intrigue principale autour du roi Arthur se déroule dans les scènes parlées ; la musique, elle, se charge de traiter les scènes allégoriques. C'est ainsi que les chanteurs n'interprètent pas seulement un rôle, mais incarnent tour à tour des dieux, des bergers, des nymphes et même un lutteur dans un combat de boxe. Et pourtant, aucun des deux genres - théâtre ou opéra - ne pourrait ici se passer de l'autre. -- Livret d'accompagnement (p.8)
