Musica Antica Rotherhithe

Early Music in the heart of SE16
2019 Season Coming Soon

Lo Spedale

A 17th Century Comedic Opera

Our largest project to date was a fully-staged production of a one-act Dramma Burlesco: Lo Spedale. Rediscovered by Dr Naomi Matsumoto and first performed by Solomon's Knot in 2015, this was its second-ever staging in modern times, and the first in a faithful 17th century production, as part of the annual Illuminate Rotherhithe Festival on November 24th.

We hope to tour the production in 2019. For more information please visit the link below.

About Us

Musica Antica Rotherhithe was founded in 2016 by local musicians Oliver Doyle and Jessica Eucker, with the aim of bringing regular performances of Early Music to SE16.

While specialising in the performance of 17th Century chamber music, their repertoire extends into opera, and to the works of composers writing in the High-Late Middle Ages, often overlooked in programmes today.

Past Performances

Over the past two years we have promoted the performance of 17th century opera on a scale not normally seen outside of established theatres. Past performances include Monteverdi's Ballo dell'Ingrate, Rossi's cantata Disperar di se Stesso, extracts from Cavalli's Ercole Amante and Lully's Le Bourgois Gentilhomme, a semi-staged programme of Purcell's songs and Caldara's rarely-heard oratorio Maddalena ai Piedi di Cristo.

Editions

As part of our aim to make Early Music as accessible as possible, to audiences and performers alike, we release editions of all our works created from manuscript sources whenever possible.
