The Burlesque Cantatas
Kings Place will host a rare opportunity to hear JS Bach’s ‘Peasant’ and ‘Coffee’ Cantatas, secular, satirical masterpieces and nothing less than comic operas.
In the Cantate burlesque, the themes of rural politics and bucolic sexuality form a heady mix within its bawdy text, while the Coffee Cantata explores the perils of addiction, and the lengths that our heroine, Lieschen, will go to secure the thing she craves most.
The Feinstein Ensemble are joined by vocal soloists from the London Bach Singers: Faye Newton, Charles Daniels and Ben Davies.
