Jewels of the Baroque

DeWitt, Savage and Dornak

Jewels of the Baroque (high music and low tea in a semi-precious setting)

Opera Feroce and VPR team up for Jewels of the Baroque, the latest episode in the Incontro Barocco series.

What happens when an uptight baroque band and an unruly troupe of singers are hired to entertain at the home of a wealthy family with pretensions to nobility? A nod to the salon concert, Jewels of the Baroque is a gleefully assembled smorgasbord of instrumental and vocal works trespassing across genres, styles and national boundaries. Singers and instrumentalists alike are costumed in High Baroque style, and the audience is shown more than a glimpse of the rivalry, revelry, and repartee among the players.
