The New Consort, Brian Mummert, director

Why is it that women in art are so often the ones punished for love? O Stars, Conspiring Against Me is a meditation on women in myth, and how those stories continue to shape the portrayal of women in art to this day. The program is built around the North American digital premiere of The Turn, a piece by UK-based composer Ben Rowarth designed to be interspersed with, and thus recontextualize, Claudio Monteverdi’s Lamento d’Arianna, and is framed by works by some of Monteverdi’s female contemporaries asking, well, the same kinds of questions we are.

Francesca Caccini, “Che t’ho fatt’io”

Barbara Strozzi, “L’usignolo”
Claudio Monteverdi, Lamento d’Arianna
Ben Rowarth, The Turn
