All Season Choir: One World
8:00PM - 9:30PM

Presented by Faser Hardin

All Seasons Choir is happy to be performing their debut concert at OPERA America in Marc A. Scorca Hall. Formed in 2017 by organist/choral director Faser Hardin, the choir is a collaboration of musical theater and opera professionals who came together to use music as a healing tool for worldwide peace and harmony. Reflecting the various artists in the group, this concert is a collection of musical styles ranging from traditional classical and sacred compositions to gospel and musical theater. The concert is free of charge to the public but contributions to All Seasons Choir fund are welcomed and appreciated.

This event is not ticketed.

Haymarket Opera Company
Concert: Oratorio per la Settimana Santa

Web Address: www.haymarketopera.org
Start Time: 5:45PM

For its third annual Lenten Oratorio, Haymarket brings you the earliest known Passion oratorio. Written in Rome in the 1640s, this stirring work contrasts the devilish delight of demons rejoicing at the death of Christ with the heartbreaking lamentation of the Virgin Mary as she weeps for the world. Attributed to Luigi Rossi, the compact masterpiece is performed by an ensemble of 17th-century instruments with soloists and chorus.

Giulio Cesare Raggioli’s libretto is excitingly dramatic compared to its forerunners and contemporaries, and the oratorio’s marked theatricality is heightened by the lack of a narrator, offering instead intense dialogues and lyrical arias and ensembles. The diabolically joyous music of the cheerful demons as they comment on her misery and on the folly of faith intensifies the dramatic impact of the Virgin’s lamentation as she pours forth the anguish of her soul (like Ariadne pining for the return of Theseus). The special color of the lirone adds unusually intense expressiveness to the most sorrowful moments, stirring compassion in listeners. This highly intense, concise, and cathartic mini-opera will engage the senses and the souls of its listeners.
