EURIDICE IN PERICOLO
Un racconto son et lumière sulle cantatrici di Claudio Monteverdi
Anna Bessi, mezzosoprano
Musiche di C.Monteverdi, S.Rossi
Famous singers of the time often came across Claudio Monteverdi’s life and music. The charming Adriana Basile, sister of the famous author of The Tale of tales, was one of the most important performes of the recitar cantando in Mantua, while nurturing her secret relationship with the refined and jelous Duke Gonzaga. Salomone Rossi’s sister, Madama Europa, was also active at the court of Mantua and was dramatically killed by the Spanish troops. Extraordinary women lived a life of light and shadows, during an incredible artistic age, among wars and famine. Luca Scarlini tells us Monteverdi’s daily life between Mantua and Cremona, for an unforgettable evening of theatre, improvisations, words and music.
