WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This new musical drama explores the early life of Carlo Gesualdo, a groundbreaking composer of the late Renaissance, who also committed the vicious double murder of his wife and her lover. Through a score which incorporates themes from Gesualdo's sacred music, this original story investigates how the composer's creative life may have been related to his brutal actions. Death for Five Voices blends period musical style with contemporary theater storytelling to create a compelling portrait of a troubled artist, living at a moment in history when complex political and religious forces collided and changed our perceptions of the possibility of art.
