Frà Dori, e Fileno

A lecture recital performance of the secular cantata by Camilla de Rossi (c. 1705-1710). Besides her surviving work, which includes several oratorios in addition to her pastoral musical-drama, Frà Dori, e Fileno, very little is known about Camilla de Rossi, self-dubbed "La Romana." Since cantatas historically lacked such production elements as sets and props, we will bring Dori and Fileno’s romantic story to life through historical gesture. A pre-concert lecture by USC doctoral student Marisa De Silva will inform audiences about gesture as a historical performance practice in Camilla de Rossi’s time and place.

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 losangelescamerata@gmail.com
