Musica Nuova performs Monteverdi’s ‘Il Ballo delle Ingrate» («The Ballet of the Ungrateful Women»)
w/ additional Monteverdi songs and dialogue

6:30pm doors | 7:30pm show | All Ages

This stunning 17th-century masque from the early days of opera recounts Cupid’s woes when women no longer heed their lovers’ desires. Cupid asks Pluto to bring the spirits of women who rejected love up from the underworld to show what fate awaits them in the afterlife. The very non-feminist message is turned on its head with the addition of other Monteverdi songs and original dialogue that create independent characters and a play within a play. Filled with humor (a real three-headed dog!), action, and thrilling music, this production of «Ballo» originated at the Amherst Early Music Festival to a rave response. With music direction by acclaimed lutenist Grant Herreid and choreography by historical dancer Dorothy Olsson, this compelling tale appeals to early music buffs and modern audiences alike.
