The Madrigal Reimagined

A celebration of the madrigal, presented in performances ranging from solo voice and lute to full string band, and exploring every facet of the genre’s transformative journey from gentle part-song to one of the dramatic cornerstones of opera. Poignant madrigals and opera scenes by Monteverdi nestle with virtuosic ornamental reworkings of older madrigals and instrumental preludes to create miniature scenes, framed by topical readings.
‘Utterly gripping in its mixture of eroticism and violence’ The Guardian
