The GRAMMY-winning Boston Early Music Festival presents an enchanting spectacle of music and dance with an all-new production of Le Carnaval de Venise, André Campra's captivating 1699 opéra-ballet. Join four star-crossed lovers as they experience the delights of the Carnival season in Venice—enjoying games, dances, and even a brilliantly realized “opera within an opera”, a miniature Italian opera on the Orpheus myth. This exquisite gem joins the elegance of French dance with the boisterous hilarity of Italian commedia dell’arte to produce a splendid feast for eyes and ears: a dazzling parade of extravagant costumes, magnificent sets, breathtaking dance, and truly ravishing music!

Singing Cast: Amanda Forsythe, Karina Gauvin, Jesse Blumberg, Douglas Williams, Christian Immler, Olivier Laquerre, Mireille Lebel, José Lemos, Jason McStoots, Nathan Medley, Molly Netter, Erica Schuller, Aaron Sheehan, Teresa Wakim, & Virginia Warnken Kelsey.
