Opera Feroce and unexpected guests in Incontro Barocco: Jewels of the Baroque
Come join us Behind the Door for Incontro Barocco, an anachronistic salon complete with food, drink and backstage intrigue. An unruly troupe of singers and an uptight baroque band are hired to entertain at the home of a wealthy family with pretensions to nobility. Featured will be music of Janequin, Monteverdi, Caprioli, Krieger, Handel, Porpora, Hasse, C.P.E. Bach, Telemann and Rameau, and even a peek into the future with an offering by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Performed by sopranos Beth Anne Hatton and Judith Barnes, mezzo soprano Hayden DeWitt, and countertenor Alan Dornak, accompanied by Joseph Trent (Traverso), Vita Wallace (Baroque Violin), Kelly Savage (Harpsichord), Motomi Igarashi (Viola da gamba) and Mark Ettinger (Viola da gamba). Also featured are soprano Allegra Durante and actors Deborah Wright Houston and Isidore Elias. Costumes by Deborah Wright Houston and Allegra Durante.
