ARCADIAN DRAMA:

Dialogues by Stradella and Blow

After a year’s hiatus, Cadmus returns to HHCC to present a concert of operatic cantatas, drawn from the works of Italian baroque secular cantatas, and from the English stage entertainments collected by John Playford in his Theater of Music publications:

“A Choice Collection of the newest and best Songs

Sung at the Court and Public Theaters.

The Words composed by the most ingenious Wits of the Age, and set to

Music by the greatest Masters in that Science.”

These two works represent the love between shepherds and nymphs and explore mistrust and fidelity in musical exchanges between two characters. The action takes place between two or three singers with continuo, and  is amplified by the addition of two violins and short instrumental interludes.

To punctuate the action, we will add a witty ditty from The Theater of Music, “Cupid, the slyest rogue alive,” a short self-contained song about Cupid and his mother Venus and the sting of love’s dart.
