Shakespeare and Purcell saw the London stage as a place for experiment, where cutting-edge music and drama brought theatre to life.
Shakespeare’s Sonnets provide the inspiration for New York City-raised rapper Baba Israel, while Purcell’s ground basses supply the harmonic groove for O/Modernt’s late-night set.
