Love in the time of War

Michael Chance, conductor and director
Music of Monteverdi, Strozzi, d’India and more

Singers and instrumentalists from every year of the programme perform a ‘Pasticcio’, a production consisting of arias and ensembles, madrigals, romances, ritornellos and instrumental pieces. It is music written for the theatre, with scenes enacted in the bedroom and on the battlefield, with secret lovers bemoaning their fate and philanderers ruining the lives of women. It is music full of raw emotion and tragedy, but also humour and seduction. A tale in which the abandoned lover competes with the warrior, the poet with the aristocrat and the nymph with the shepherd. Stirring music from the age of the birth of opera.
