Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The conductor Laurence Cummings and students from the Royal Academy of Music and tenor Robeto Ortiz present a programme of baroque dance. Featuring madrigals by Gesualdo and Monteverdi, dances from the ducal courts of seventeenth-century Ital,y including the daring La nizzarda and the elegant contrapasso nuovo, a descent into Hades with Act 3 of Monteverdi's 'Orfeo', and finally all the fun of the Venetian Carnival. (Note: at 6pm Shoreditch Bells – The Society of Royal Cumberland Youths ring out the last of our events at Shoreditch Church. At 6.30pm a pre-concert talk.)
