A quirky fictional journey inside the bedroom and head of composer Henry Purcell (1659-1695), as he takes us behind the scenes of the Restoration Theatre, to the vibrant taverns and streets of London, with live music of the period performed by rising star ensemble Ceruleo.

Purcell is in his final illness, suffering from feverish dream-like hallucinations in which the past, including his childhood memories of the Plague and the Fire of London, present, and fantasy collide - and his songs take on a life of their own.
