El Gran Teatro del Mundo

Alice Julien-Laferrière, Andrés Murillo violins Michael Form recorder Miriam Jorde oboe
Bruno Hurtado viola da gamba Jonas Nordberg theorbo Julio Caballero harpsichord and artistic direction

We are delighted to welcome this brilliant young Spanish ensemble as they return to Yorkshire to open the 2024 Festival with an evocative programme taking us on a magical musical journey through the night. Specialists in French music from the time of the Sun King, this programme will bring to life the operas of the Grand Siècle with instrumental interpretations of scenes in which night will be the best ally of love, and sleep, death’s best friend.

Supported by the Creative Europe EEEmerging+ scheme, El Gran Teatro del Mundo have enchanted audiences with their sparkling musicianship since winning the Cambridge Early Music Prize at the 2019 York International Young Artists Competition.
