Friday January 4, 2019 at 18:30 to Sunday January 6, 2019 at 13:30
Venice, European political power since the Middle Ages, took a while to flower musically. The Gabrielli’s in the late 16th Century heralded a golden age of Venetian life: great church services in San Marco Basilica, flamboyant political and social ceremonies, the first commercial opera houses, and music played in the city orphanages. Discover Montiverde, Cavalli, Vivaldi etc. across one of music’s most splendid periods.
