Burning River Baroque

05/26/2016 7:00 PM

This is your chance to experience the fire and passion of Burning River Baroque during their cutting-edge performance On the Brink of Insanity: Portrayals of Women as Mad, Crazy, and Unhinged at the library! While opera is well-known for scenes of overwhelming emotion, male characters are frequently portrayed as being consumed with power. When women are overcome with emotion, male composers often attribute madness or craziness to them. The concert will include Handel’s cantata “La Lucrezia,” John Eccles’s mad song “I Burn, I Burn,” and other baroque works with similar themes.
