SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera.

The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.

DIDO & AENEAS

with

Morningside Opera

Morningside Opera's production of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas focuses on the opera's most iconic moment, Dido's "Remember me, but not my fate," to explore notions of fame, memory, and public opinion in modern celebrity culture. In an age where social media defines public personae, whose fate can ever really be forgotten? Virgil's hero is recast as a Vice presidentlal hopeful, Troy Aeneas, with Dido Carthage as his secret super-starlet paramour. Belinda, Dido's publicist, sees the romance as a chance to bump Dido's ratings. The SourceHeiress, a bitter celebrity blogger who hates "all in prosp'rous state," tears the couple apart by manipulating public opinion as if by magic, leaving Dido only one tragic possibility for escape.
