The semi-opera King Arthur, or The British Worthy, premiered in 1691 and is based on a libretto written in 1684 by John Dryden (1631-1700). This poet and dramatist, who was celebrated during his lifetime, was so impressed by the music of the equally famous composer Henry Purcell in 1690 that he offered his revised King Arthur Purcell for setting to music. The result was the first semi-opera that was not based on an existing play but nevertheless combined spoken drama with musical scenes. King Arthur remained in the repertoire well into the 18th century, with the popularity being due in particular to Purcell’s intimate and innovative music. This work and a psalm by Heinrich Schütz have been published by “Althorn” from Switzerland.

The idea for the play “Parade of Animals” comes from the fact that the theme “Animals” in particular stimulates children’s imagination. Although the character traits of the individual animals are hinted at, they must be brought to sound by the performers themselves and in an effective way. Published by Kliment, Vienna
