The History of Sir Francis Drake was a hybrid theatrical entertainment, a masque or "operatic tableau" with an English libretto written by Sir William Davenant and music by Matthew Locke. The masque was most likely first performed in 1659 and produced by Davenant. As with his earlier The Siege of Rhodes (1656) and The Cruelty of the Spaniards in Peru (1658), Davenant cast The History of Sir Francis Drake as a musical drama to avoid the Puritan prohibition of stage plays during the English Commonwealth era. The three Davenant works were important in the evolution of English opera and musical theatre, and heralded the coming revival of drama with the Restoration of 1660.

  • The History of Sir Francis Drake fue un entretenimiento teatral híbrido, una masque o "tableau operístico" con un libreto en inglés escrito por sir William Davenant y música de Matthew Locke. Lo más probable es que esta masque se estrenara en 1659 y se produjera por Davenant. Como en sus obras anteriores, The Siege of Rhodes (1656) y The Cruelty of the Spaniards in Peru (1658), Davenant ideó The History of Sir Francis Drake como un drama musical para eludir la prohibición puritana de las obras teatrales durante la época de la Mancomunidad de Inglaterra. Las tres obras de Davenant fueron importantes en la evolución de la ópera inglesa y el teatro musical, y anunciaban la proximidad del renacimiento del drama con la Restauración de 1660. (es)
