A stunning programme of baroque classics for Valentine’s Day, exploring themes of love, joy and madness, arranged and performed with Red Priest’s trademark energy, virtuosity and creativity. Described as ‘superhuman’ by The Washington Post, Red Priest has been at the cutting edge of baroque performance for over a quarter of a century. Named after the original ‘red priest’, Antonio Vivaldi, the group has developed a truly unique style, combining high-energy performance, boundary-crossing arrangements and theatrical presentation, delighting audiences across the globe.    

‘Astonishing all-out virtuosity’ (The New York Times)

‘For sheer technical wizardry, charismatic showmanship and expressive devilment, Red Priest is in an exhilarating class of its own’ (BBC Music Magazine)
