Love and Prejudice

In this program, we embark on a musical journey through love stories from the English repertoire of the early 18th century. We bear the anguish of one-sided love, enjoy the thrill of experiencing lust for the first time, feel the endless pleasure of falling in love, and most importantly - laugh when we come across the exquisite English humor.
