Circle of Virtue The Song Company

Presented by The Song Company
 

A DRAMATIC PRESENTATION OF THE EARLIEST SURVIVING MUSIC DRAMA BY 12TH-CENTURY ABBESS, VISIONARY, AND NATURAL PHILOSOPHER, HILDEGARD OF BINGEN

One of the earliest-named composers in Western musical history and outspoken in her dealings with princes and popes in mediaeval Europe, Abbess Hildegard of Bingen created the earliest-known opera or music drama, Ordo Virtutum, for the female inmates of her Abbey at Rupertsberg. The Song Company presents a semi-staged performance of Hildegard’s story of the internal struggle of a Soul battling for her mental well-being with seventeen Virtues on one side and the Devil on the other…

Be excited for an evening of wonderful music combined with a transcending and atmospheric stage presentation
