Buy Tickets Vivaldi: Music for a Venetian Orphanage


Performed by English Touring Opera


This autumn, English Touring Opera (ETO) presents a rare treat – Vivaldi’s beautiful sacred music in the beautiful setting of St Wilfrid's Church, Harrogate.

ETO soloists and baroque orchestra the Old Street Band join forces with Harrogate Vocalis this atmospheric concert of music for the celebrated orphan musicians of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, where Vivaldi, nicknamed the 'Red Priest', worked for most of his life.

The programme features the Magnificat, whose arias in the original score were inscribed with the name of the orphan girl intended to perform, the exquisite Stabat Mater for solo voice and the exuberant Jubilate O Amoeni, an elaboration of Vivaldi's celebrated Gloria in D major with additional text and arias.



The event will be 90 minutes long.

Baroque Opera From Venice

 
Join us for glorious music, timeless stories and a live experience to stir your passions.
 
In 17th century Venice, residents and tourists alike celebrated for months during Carnival season. At its heart was opera, a thrilling spectacle enjoyed by people from all walks of life.
 
This Autumn, English Touring Opera brings Venice to you with a season of three operas written to be performed during Carnival.

Jason
Cavalli
 
Audiences in Venice loved to laugh at gods and heroes and, as a result, Jason was the runaway success of the 17th century.
 
The hero of the Golden Fleece forgets his wife, shirks his responsibilities and strikes up a relationship with a beautiful, mysterious queen. With sensuous tunes and bawdy comedy, Jason embodies the true spirit of Venetian opera.

The Coronation Of Poppea
Monteverdi
 
Love, power, morality, corruption... Monteverdi’s masterpiece depicts the ruthless Roman Emperor Nero and his fiery affair with beautiful Poppea.
 
Lust and ambition triumph – very seductively – over virtue and reason.
 
 
Sat 2 Nov
 
Agrippina
Handel
 
Agrippina features the same real-life characters as The Coronation of Poppea, but is more of a comedy, with Nero’s mother scheming to get her son on the Roman throne.
 
Translated in the style of a Restoration comedy, this one’s for you if you’ve enjoyed The Way of the World or She Stoops to Conquer.
