Miller presents the expert early-music group Le Poème Harmonique in their largest New York production to date. Performed by candlelight, this theatrical concert presentation builds on the ensemble’s eye-opening approach to opera, using historical gesture, vocal ornament, and an imaginative sequence of songs to depict life in 17th-century Venice. Set in the streets and canals of the city during the time of Carnival, Venezia dalle strade ai Palazzi (Venice: From the Streets to the Palaces) pairs Monteverdi’s haunting madrigals on the torments of love with light, witty works by Francesco Manelli, transporting listeners back in time through song.
