Tero Saarinen’s new magnum opus explores radical shifts in values and perspectives. Claudio Monteverdi’s revolutionary, breathtakingly beautiful madrigals are incarnated by twelve dancers and musicians, plus tenor Topi Lehtipuu and virtual soprano Núria Rial. TSC and Helsinki Baroque Orchestra join forces to create a gripping contemporary fusion of dance, live music, opera and design.
The international co-production will receive its world premiere in Cremona, Italy, at Teatro Amilcare Ponchielli, Rassegna di Danza / Monteverdi Festival, on 29 May 2019. Finnish premiere at Kuopio Dance Festival 17 – 18 June.
Audiences in Helsinki will have an opportunity to observe the creative process: work-in-progress open rehearsals at the Finnish National Theatre in Helsinki will take place on May 17 – 18. Tickets lippu.fi
