    Blind Man's Buff

    We are delighted to welcome Concerto di Margherita back to York following their EEEmerging residency as they present their very personal take on Guarini’s 1590 play Il pastor fido in which a shepherd and a nymph take part in a game of Blind Man’s Buff, with consequences both unintended and cruel. Taking Guarini as inspiration, as well as the music of late 16th- and early 17thcentury Italian composers such as de Wert, Caccini, Kapsberger, Frescobaldi and d’India, the ensemble sing and accompany themselves in a fable of the archetypal lover, born in Arcadian innocence, deluded by love, disoriented in darkness and finding solace in obscurity.
