Henry Purcell's last major work, The Indian Queen, receives special treatment in this compelling interpretation by Harry Christophers and the Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus. Last performed by H&H in 1995, this semi-opera surrounds Queen Zempoalla of Mexico and focuses on her resistance against Montezuma's invading Peruvian army. Adapted from John Dryden and Sir Robert Howard's 1664 play, the opera was completed by Henry's brother Daniel after his death.
