Campra’s Le Carnaval de Venise

Presented by Boston Early Music Festival
Emerson/Cutler Majestic Theatre 219 Tremont Street , Boston

The GRAMMY-winning Boston Early Music Festival presents an enchanting spectacle of music and dance with the fully staged North American premiere of Le Carnaval de Venise, André Campra’s captivating 1699 opéra-ballet.

Join four star-crossed lovers as they experience the delights of the Carnival season in Venice—enjoying games, dances, and even a brilliantly realized “opera within an opera”, a miniature Italian opera on the Orpheus myth. This exquisite gem joins the elegance of French dance with the boisterous hilarity of Italian commedia dell’arte to produce a splendid feast for eyes and ears, led by Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs, Stage Director Gilbert Blin, Concertmaster Robert Mealy and Dance Director Melinda Sullivan with choreography by Caroline Copeland.
