The concert features soprano Lucy Crowe and counter-tenor Tim Mead, in the delicious agony of grief that is Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, an acknowledged masterpiece by one of the 18th century’s most influential composers.

Get involved: Being an EOC Friend is so much more. Your support is vital to our lean organisation and very much appreciated. We can offer exclusive behind-the-scenes access to rehearsals and recordings, priority access to tickets, sneak peaks at our future plans, and to meet Christian and our artists for a chat after rehearsals.
The past and the future: 22 years ago, Christian Curnyn founded Early Opera Company to explore the furthest reaches of early music. In recent years we have brought baroque opera to The Roundhouse and Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, unveiled Rameau Platée and Castor et Pollux at St John’s Smith Square, explored Purcell and Monteverdi’s music with young children, and won awards for our Handel recordings.
Today, we want to continue to reach out to new people and build audiences for early music. We have a unique opportunity to bring the glories of the baroque to a new generation. Please join us today! Thank you.
