Opera Contempo, in co-production with NEXT Ensemble, presents "The Combat" by Claudio Monteverdi, adapted by David Campbell; starring Hilary Koolhoven as the Narrator; Anna Hawkes as Tancredi; and Alyssa Liu as Clorinda. Danced by Karllen Johson and Aimee Pike. Directed by Emilio Casillas and conducted by Evie Marie Gilgen.
Why do we hurt the ones we love most? Does technology bring us closer in connection, or only create combat? We explore these themes in this Baroque opera, sung and played live with acoustic and electric instruments in an adapted modern score. Dancers represent the virtual battle taking place between Tancredi and Clorinda, two people who care deeply about each other, but who can't seem to get past their ideological differences. Will the combat lead to reconciliation or death?
Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Find tickets HERE
