But change is a desperate wind that is difficult to resist by shutting the window. The tension between this traditional window and modern wind grows to such an extent that it starts to leave a ripple effect on the lives of a group of typically colorful, eccentri

Opera Lafayette: L'épreuve villageoise
Dates: May 27-28
Auditorium: FIAF, Florence Gould Hall
Contact: Natascha Bodemann
  55 East 59th Street
  New York, NY United States
Phone: 212 355 6100

Opera Lafayette’s 20th anniversary season closes with an opera that delighted audiences during the early 19th century, not only in an opera-rich Europe, but also in the young American cities of New Orleans and New York. With an extraordinary cast hailing from the three nations whose cultures animated New Orleans at the time – France, Spain, and the United States – Opera Lafayette re-imagines a performance by the storied Théatre d’Orléans. Grétry’s L’Épreuve Villageoise depicts the trials and tribulations of a small country town. The rustic story and charming musical composition blend beautifully, emphasizing an essential aspect of Grétry’s operas that helped ensure his place as one of the 18th century’s most admired composers.

Sacri Chiaroscuri: Arie per Artemisia
Dates: Friday, May 29th
Sponsor: L'Accademia delle Arti del Disegno of Florence, in collaboration with Salon/Sanctuary Concerts
Auditorium: The Basilica of Santissima Annunziata, Cappella di San Luca (Accademia delle Arti del Disegno of Florence)
  Piazza Santissima Annunziata
  Florence, Italy

Sacri Chiaroscuri: Arie per Artemisia The Basilica of Santissima Annunziata, Cappella di San Luca (Accademia delle Arti del Disegno of Florence) Soprano Jessica Gould, lutenist Diego Cantalupi, cellist Veronica Lapiccirella, and harpsichordist / organist Lucia Baldacci perform a concert of works by Purcell, Carissimi, Barbara Strozzi, and Händel which honor Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – 1656), the first woman artist accepted into the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno. A post-Caravaggian genius, early recognition of Gentileschi's talent was tempered by acts of violence and struggles for survival. Born in Rome, she apprenticed in Florence, and later travelled to Venice and London. From the parallel female genius of Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi, to the dramatic chiaroscuro of Carissimi's counter-Reformation motets, to the word-painting of Purcell and the scene-setting of Handel, this concert offers a musical mirror to Artemisia's canvas.
