Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of St. Peter)

Mar 19th • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm • Musco Center for the Arts

From the creative mind of acclaimed director Peter Sellars comes his very first a cappella staging – and most personal work to date. Orlando di Lasso knew that Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of St. Peter) – his glorious 1594 cycle of 20 madrigals plus a motet – was to be the last piece he would ever compose, so he packed every measure with intensity and poetic lyricism, creating a towering work of beauty. Twenty-one singers transform this sweeping Renaissance masterpiece into an overwhelmingly emotional performance piece.
