Time’s Arrow - Lagrime Mie

March 8, 2019

Continuing our commitment to amplifying the voices of female artists across multiple mediums, this year's Time's Arrow festival juxtaposes old and new stories of the biblical character Susanna. Exploring sensitive themes of our time, the festival includes the fully staged world premiere of the new opera Artemisia and concerts of Handel's Susanna as Trinity continues its presentation of the composer's oratorios.

The Time's Arrow event on March 8 offers a night of music celebrating the extraordinary Italian Baroque composer, Barbara Strozzi, featuring the premiere of new works by composers Doug Balliett, Molly Joyce, Jessica Meyer, and Alyssa Weinberg. 

"Lagrime Mie" explores the female perspective in composition, particularly the raw evocation of emotion heard in the music of the famous baroque artist Barbara Strozzi, who broke through gender barriers to become the most successful composer of secular vocal music in Venice in her time. Works by Strozzi and several of her contemporaries are paired with world premieres of Trinity-commissioned works focusing on empowering female voices.

March 8 at 8pm:
