Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

One of the world’s leading period instrument orchestras, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) took their name from the era which the core of their repertoire is based on: the Age of Enlightenment.

Brilliant and original, these musicians have turned their music into a story that is surprising, funny, profound and universal. To date, they have worked with some of the most distinguished musicians around the world, including Sir Simon Rattle, Vladimir Jurowksi, Sir William Christie, Sir Roger Norrington and Sir András Schiff.

Headquartered at Kings Place, OAE is a resident orchestra of London’s Southbank Centre and an associate orchestra at Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
