A 'semi-opera' featuring an exchange of music and spoken dialogue, was the result of a collaboration in 1691 with the poet and dramatist John Dryden. The storyline avoids familiar Arthurian legend, and focuses more on the live triangle of a blind Cornish princess, King Arthur and Oswald, Saxon King of Kent. Amongst all this, Purcell's music, brimming with French-inspired dance movements, is always brilliantly descriptive and entertaining. Semi staged
