Venus & Adonis 2015

5 10 2015

Opera Mint and Pavane Early Music Consort presented John Blow’s Venus and Adonis ‘a Masque for the court of King Charles II’ at a range of venues in September and October. There were four performances at Tredegar House near Newport and two in Cardiff – one at Beulah Chapel in Rhiwbina and the other at the Spit & Sawdust Skatepark in Rumney. The skatepark presented some unusual challenges, but gave Cupid the opportunity to put ‘his’ skates on.  The performance was filmed by Alex Priestley and Wil Stewart.
