Theatre review: Gabriel at Shakespeare's Globe

gabriel adamson samuel

Monarchs, princes, prostitutes, wigmakers, composers, tapsters, musicians, transvestites and watermen jostle for attention in the teeming, unruly world of late seventeenth-century London, where enthralling stories both real and imagined merge and intersect. Samuel Adamson's 'Gabriel' premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in July 2013 with Alison Balsom, one of the world's finest trumpeters, performing the music of Purcell and Handel. I think it will be very seductive in that way. How did the production come about? This is noisily Protestant England - the England of William and Mary's Glorious Revolution at the end of a century of civil strife. The country is at war, so the trumpet was a very symbolic instrument, a war-like signalling instrument.

The Globe website says the show contains saucy humour and rude bits, can you tell us any more? The swearing was shocking and the nudity unexpected, using the trumpet in ways people only joke about. I want things how they were. This was probably due to the lack of direct instruction from a conductor. Adamson: I knew that Alison would be on stage.

This is London in the 1690s, the monster city tamed into awe by our only Orpheus: Henry Purcell. Samuel Adamson's Gabriel premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in July 2013 with Alison Balsom, one of the world's finest trumpeters, performing the music of Purcell and Handel. Upon reflection I would have to disagree: the music seemed of little importance and served more as a quick break during changes in set. These and several other storylines make a rich mixture of fact and fiction both poignant and amusing but it is the music that is the real glory of the evening. When stepping into the auditorium, my breath was taken away by how beautiful the scenery was.

Adamson, Samuel

This being my first visit to the newly-refurbished Globe, I was astonished at how realistic the auditorium felt. Gabriel premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in July 2013 with Alison Balsom, one of the world's finest trumpeters, performing the music of Purcell and Handel. However, some of the woodwind instruments — the oboe and bassoon in particular — struggled to cut through: perhaps they needed to push harder to keep up with the other instruments, as they were rarely heard at all. After six lonely weeks with nobody but her disabled boy for company, Rita Affleck, wealthy, beautiful and consumed by jealous love, welcomes home her husband Alfred. His next play was Drink, Dance, Laugh and Lie at the Bush in 1999. The trumpet blended with the tenor voice impeccably both in quality and in phrasing. But the interesting thing about Purcell at the time, which Alison has discovered, is that he was writing really broad, colourful pieces that reinvented the way the trumpet could be used.

Francis Sam Cox and William Joshua James were also admirably played characters. The play led to him becoming Pearson Writer in Residence at the Bush from 1997 to 1998. This is London in the 1690s, the monster city tamed into awe by our only Orpheus: Henry Purcell. One thing i should say is people like classical music so much more than they think they do. The lobby, being very modern with big glass windows, is a great contrast to the historically-accurate building. In 2005 he contributed to the 24 Hour Plays at the and in 2007 to A Chain Play at the.

But, far from the passionate reunion she so craves, there is only torment as Alfred's possessive half-sister arrives, and he announces his great revelation. This is London in the 1690s, the monster city tamed into awe by our only Orpheus: Henry Purcell. When Sam and I first met I knew it was a case of informing Sam of where I had got to with the exploration of the music, then just handing it over and trusting him. Drink, Dance, Laugh and Lie is a wildly entertaining look at the nature of celebrity. The operas that Purcell wrote use music and text and singing and dance.
