Details about Clarke : The Island Princess |  Associated sheet music

The Island Princess is a semi-opera in five acts from the Baroque period.

It was composed by Jeremiah Clarke in association with Daniel Purcell.

The libretto was written by Peter Anthony Motteux after a play of the same title written in 1621 by John Fletcher.

Semi-operas were popular in England during the Restoration.

A semi-opera combines singing, speaking and dancing roles.

The music composed for semi-operas was usually intended for moments in the play immediately following either love scenes or scenes involving supernatural elements.

The semi-opera The Island Princess tells a heroic story of love and honour set in the East Indies.

It is marked with the triumph of Christianity and true love.
