Pasquini’s Baroque Opera, La Sincerità con la Sincerità ossia Il Tirinto

Consortium Carissimi offers many different genre (or kinds) of music over the years such as Motets, Cantatas and Oratorios. This season includes yet another genre: The Opera.

Written in 1672, this world premiere in modern day performances of Bernardo Pasquini’s Il Tirinto will close the season on a whimsical note.

This fully staged opera will be directed by Twin Cities director, Jon Cranney, bringing to life again the atmosphere of the southern hills of Rome where the genre was better tolerated than within the walls of the eternal city.

The search for a home, the search for long lost son and the search for love will entertain our Twin Cities audiences with three performances of this delightful early baroque opera. You will not want to miss this premier event!
