With its lavish music and elaborate staging, the semi-opera King Arthur is one of the master-pieces in Purcell’s works. On a text by the poet John Dryden very freely inspired from Arthurian legend and specifically devised for him, Purcell created a work of great expressive intensity which includes among his most beautiful and well-known arias.
