The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment bring their period-specific instruments, unique style and unmatched energy to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this winter.

After their celebrated performance of Moliere's Le Malade Imaginaire, the OAE return to the Playhouse to perform a programme centred around Matthew Locke’s popular incidental music to The Tempest. Locke composed the music for a brand new version of the play, written by Tomas Shadwell and first performed at the Duke’s Theatre on Lincoln’s Inn Field in April 1674. Be transported back to 17th century London in the company of this, one of the world’s most celebrated and innovative ensembles.

‘For this remarkable ensemble, it’s all about the music’
