This unique trio of tenor, theorbo and viola da gamba has devised an afternoon of Metamorphoses, bringing Ovid’s masterpiece to musical life. This programme explores the Europe-wide influence of the poet’s characters throughout the 17th century, revealing that, despite the many ways in which each European culture has transformed, we share a heritage in human passion and emotion.
