Marian Vespers Park Ave Armory

Got a flyer in the mail about this work-can't say I'm familiar with it. Len

Marian Vespers, written in 1610 and among Claudio Monteverdi‘s greatest choral and instrumental achievements, will be performed in the Armory’s soaring Wade Thompson Drill Hall in the North American premiere of Pierre Audi‘s celebrated Dutch National Opera’s production that opened the 2017 Holland Festival. Conductor Raphaël Pichon will lead his renowned Baroque orchestra and choral ensemble Pygmalion in this tour de force, offering up a dizzying array of textures and sonorities, opulent choruses, and touching solo arias and duets. Audi’s fresh visual and spatial interpretation with its cathedral-like setting and wandering chorus creates a wondrous, spiritual “mise-en-écoute”. Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere‘s massive, haunting sculpture Cripplewood contributes the central visual element.

Pierre Audi is the Armory’s Marina Kellen French Artistic Director. ... ia_vespers
