The OAE is much more than one of the world's pre-eminent period instrument ensembles. It works regularly with conductors who specialise in both early music and the modern repertoire, and has explored the work of composers from Bach to Mahler, Handel to Borodin. Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Resident Orchestra at Southbank Centre, performs a ‘new’ version of Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail on 24 November, with dialogue replaced by English narration by Simon Butteris. Conductor Bernard Labadie leads a celebrated cast including Susan Gritton and Malin Christenssen Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment website.
