Some of the most fabled and powerful women of mythological history come to life in a program of new and old music, performed by the baroque chamber ensemble SacroProfano in their east coast debut. Acclaimed storyteller and composer Doug Balliet’s song cycle Wicked Women is the centerpiece of this 1-hour seamless musical production. Arias and incidental music by Handel and Lully round out the program. Dramatic, profane, sincere, and wicked are the women of these stories, and soprano Laura Bohn, called “eloquent and fervent” by the San Francisco Chronicle, embodies all of them. The instrumentalists of SacroProfano are familiar to the New York early music community, although this is their first time performing together outside of the Pacific Northwest. Join us by candlelight at the witching hour to experience the stories of the women we can never forget.
