What did Henry Purcell dream about? What matter did his dreams consist of? Did he sleep well at night? Did he have the time to sleep, he who composed hundreads of works? We will never know. no letter has been preserved in which it can be read. But his music remains. And she secretly stirs up the most beautiful fantasies. From 'Music for a while' to 'One charming night', the English musical genius opened the doors to a theater full of imagination, a powerful dream machine that makes everything possible. Because Purcell makes time and space forgotten.

There are singers and two musicians on stage: one plays the lute, the other accompanied by her accordion. Together they are the ideal allies to shine the colors and contrasts of Purcell's repertoire. The three of them let us relive this beautiful music full of unusual charm. They conjure up melody, while we venture into the unfathomable paths of the imagination, not unknown to children. A wonderful way to get lost inspired by Purcell and ingeniously designed by an artist who manipulates shadows, objects and video.
