Bittersweet Obsessions: Monteverdi & Bach

Performance Dates & Times

TWO OPERAS

Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda (The combat of Tancredi and Clorinda)

Two armoured knights meet. One named Tancredi. The other, a mystery. Tancredi engages in a battle with the stranger. Who is Tancredi’s adversary? The battle continues. In a heartbreaking revelation, Tancredi realises he’s killed the woman he loves – Clorinda.

Coffee Cantata

Spirited Liesgen loves coffee. Loves, loves, loves. She must have it. To her, coffee is more delicious than a thousand kisses. More pleasing than wine. But her father tries to ban it. Liesgen is beside herself. She absolutely must have her fix. Three cups a day to be exact. Or else she’ll turn into a “shrivelled-up roast goat”. True story.
