A Dafne Double Bill!

Week Two, July 21-28, 2019

Two one-act Italian operas from opposite ends of the baroque spectrum. Inspired by Ovid's literary classic, The Metamorphoses, each piece recounts the myth of the nymph Daphne, her desperate flight from a lust-maddened Apollo, and her magical transformation. Composed by Gagliano in 1608 and Reutter 1734, staged and performed with chamber ensemble. Audition deadline April 1, 2019
