Hildegard's "Ordo Virtutum" with San Francisco Renaissance Voices
San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Katherine McKee, Music Director) acclaimed East-Indian infused production ("Hildegard's music rang out anew," ... Los Angeles Times) of the rarely-performed work, Ordo Virtutum (The Play of the Virtues) by the medieval mystic nun Hildegard von Bingen - returns! Hildegard's only full length work, it is one of the earliest extant liturgical musical dramas that provided the basis for the art form we now know as opera. Ordo Virtutum tells the story of the challenges of The Human Soul (Anime) as she is guided by The Virtues led by their queen Humility, to obtain wholeness of the spirit. Our stellar singers will be joined by our returning original-cast, internationally-renowned instrumentalists, Deepak Ram (bansuri), Diana Rowan (Celtic harp) and Todd Jolly (percussion), and our dance troupe San Francisco Renaissance Dancers (Jennifer Meller, Director) will reconstruct the dances Hildegard wrote for this piece.
