Madrigalen

Director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe stages Monteverdi’s Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi with utopian enthusiasm.

The inexhaustible simplicity of our possibilities. A multifaceted choir no longer sings with the wind, but goes back to a formless beginning, where all the meanings of love and conflict can still take shape. Director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe stages Monteverdi’s Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi with utopian enthusiasm. In an ancient grotto, the singing and dancing of the performers shares equal prominence with new symbols and contemporary artworks. Present, past and future thus merge into a single point, a zero point.
