The Music Scholars and Choirs of Barnard Castle school bring Purcell's Restoration Semi Opera, King Arthur to The Witham for a very special evening of entertainment.

Soloists include: Philippa Dearsley Soprano and Peter Coulson - Bass.

King Arthur is best known for the beautiful Aria 'fairest isle' and the hilarious character 'cold-Genius' who sings with his teeth chattering, and a tremble on every note: who is then echoed by an entire chorus chattering and trembling in sympathy. It is a work full of character and delight, and is not so much about Arthur of the round table, but about the magic realms, and the battles between the Saxons and Britons.
