Jeffrey Skidmore
Simon Robson narrator


Purcell’s semi-opera imagines war between a Mexican Indian Queen and an Inca King, a tale of tangled loyalties, unexpected identity and seemingly hopeless love. Expect exquisite instrumental music, stunning recitatives and vivid characters – Fame, Envy, a Conjurer to name a few – as things start to unravel for the Indian Queen…


The scene is set for The Indian Queen with evocative Latin American Baroque music unearthed by Jeffrey Skidmore during his visits to Mexico and Bolivia.


We’re delighted to return to the London Festival of Baroque Music, with its theme for 2019 ‘Crossing the Border’ exploring travel and discovery.
