Julia Matthews, soprano, known from New Trinity Baroque's latest CD relase of Purcell's "Dido & Aeneas" (where she sang Belinda) will return as the lead singer for this chamber comic opera (Serpina), as well as the Stage Director. Together with bass Jason Hardy (as Uberto) and Kurt-Alexander Zeller (as Vespone), and accompanied by New Trinity Baroque, they will perform on period instruments, and present the first historically informed performance of Pergolesi's master piece. NTB will also perform two famous concertos, featuring Boston-based oboist, Joyce Alper, for oboe, Albinoni’s Op.9, No. 2 in d minor and Alessandro Marcello’s concerto in d minor, as interludes to the intermezzi.
Pergolesi's chamber opera buffa "The Maid Mistress" (1733) was enjoyed from the first day it was presented in the Theatre in Naples , and through many subsquent generations. The splendid acoustics of St. Bart's will enhance the experience while New Trinity Baroque tries to visually "transform" the space to fit within the lines of the story (stage-wise). This performance is fully staged. Seating is limited.
The performance will be repeated in Oxford, GA on Monday, October 25.
