With orchestra, soloists, and chorus placed strategically throughout Strathmore's acoustically superb concert hall, this performance of Monteverdi's seminal sacred work will surround you with glorious sound, each tone and phrase answering another, in a richly colored musical tapestry. "One of those rare religious compositions through which it seems the clouds part and we hear heaven itself. Like Handel's Messiah and Bach's St. Matthew Passion, the Vespers is sacred music at its most sublime" (The Austin Chronicle).

The 1st Act will be approximately 60 minutes. There will be an intermission. The 2nd Act will be approximately 40 minutes.
