Les Délices: Fated Lovers

  • St. James Episcopal Church 119 North Duke Street Lancaster, PA, 17602 United States (map)

Presented by Early Music at St. James

Just as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Two evocative cantatas by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (Pyrame et Thisbé and Héro et Leandre) and excerpts from Rameau’s groundbreaking opera Hippolyte et Aricie relate the timeless tales of star-crossed lovers in this new program featuring acclaimed soprano Clara Rot tsolk (“supple and stylish…unflaggingly attractive” – Gramophone) and tenor Jason McStoots (“an exquisite singer and a fine actor, rounding out heartfelt performances with meaningful gestures and facial expressions” – Cleveland Plain Dealer).
