Bittersweet Obsessions: Monteverdi & Bach

Australian Brandenburg Orchestra

Bittersweet Obsessions: Monteverdi & Bach

Performance Dates & Times

 

Three timeless tales that follow one woman’s journey through the bitter and sweet of life.

LAMENT
Monteverdi Lamento della Ninfa.
A beautiful, moving story of loss and mourning, the nymph, angrily and with broken heart, sings the story of her traitorous lover.

TRAGEDY
Monteverdi Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda (The combat of Tancredi and Clorinda)
A story of love, tragedy and mistaken identity.

COMEDY
J.S. BACH Coffee Cantata.
A rollicking satire about the coffee-drinking antics of this lusciously-jolly, caffeine-crazed woman.

Soprano Natasha Wilson ties these three worlds together in a dramatic, staged performance with the Brandenburg. Discover heartbreak, passion, and comic revelry in a suppressive world. Joining Natasha on stage are tenors Karim Sulayman from the USA and Australian Spencer Darby, as well as Danish bass Jakob Bloch Jespersen.
