Giovanni Battista Guarini’s tragicomedy play Il pastor fido (The faithful shepherd), set in the mythical and idealised pastoral world of  Arcadia, inspired a whole generation of madrigal composers. Character names, especially those of the two lovers Amarilli and Myrtillo, even appeared widely in English madrigals.

Enjoy an evening of exquisite music from two award-winning ensembles in the idyllic setting of the Royal Spa.
