Les Délices presents Fated Lovers

When: Sun., April 9, 4-5:30 p.m. 2017

Just as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Les Délices brings timeless tales of star-crossed lovers to life with Fated Lovers, the final program of their 8th season on April 8 & 9, 2017. The legendary lovers Pyramus & Tisbe, Hippolyte & Aricie, and Hero & Leander indulged forbidden desires, arranged secret trysts, faced natural disasters, suffered tragic death, and even – with intercession from the Gods – found redemption and reunification. The music, thrillingly set by Clérambault and Rameau, expresses sentiments ranging from ardent desire and exaltation to lamenting and loss.
