The Power of Myth

The Power of Myth explores the greatest stories ever told through powerful performances by acclaimed and diverse artists. The season’s crown jewel is our May 2023 presentation of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, featuring a cast for the ages under the direction of founding Artistic Director Stephen Stubbs. Our season begins in October with the stellar voices of baritone Dashon Burton and soprano Maya Kherani in the dramatic tales Of Gods and Mortals. December’s In Mary’s Arms tells the Christmas story through baroque favorites by Bach, Corelli, and Handel. In March, Murder and Mayhem takes you to the turbulent world of 17th century England through the songs and instrumental music of William Lawes, one of the most important composers of the generation before Henry Purcell. Power, majesty, and wonder – all the hallmarks of a great PMW season!
