La Mirtilla

A world-premiere staged reading

Seventeen years before the first performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream (1605), Isabella Andreini dedicated her pastoral drama, La Mirtilla (1588), to Lady Lavinia della Rovere. Yet, there is no evidence that this work has ever been performed! Andreini represents many shades of love in a comedic tapestry that stands out from other pastorals with its moments of gravity that resonate with today's #metoo movement. Our staged reading (in English, translated by Dr. Julie Campbell) will be performed with live music from the period by L.A. Camerata players.

This event is FREE to attend and open to the public. $10 suggested donations will be graciously received at the door. RSVP to

Frà Dori, e Fileno

A lecture recital performance of the secular cantata by Camilla de Rossi (1710). Besides her surviving work, which includes several oratorios in addition to Frà Dori, e Fileno, all we know about Camilla de Rossi is that she called herself "The Roman." The cantata we will be performing is full of pastoral imagery in both text and sound. We will also demonstrate period gesture in lecture and staged performance.
