SANTA ROSALIA

  • Trinity Church Wall Street 75 Broadway New York, NY, 10006 United States (map)

Music written for the Santa Rosalia festivities in Palermo was often destroyed after the initial performance, underlining the ephemeral character of the event. Thanks to a repeat performance in Modena the year following its 1687 premiere, NYBI will resurrect and give the modern-day premiere of the monumental Santa Rosalia, one of four surviving oratorios by Bonaventura Aliotti. Soprano Johannette Zomer will star in the title role, Santa Rosalia.

**pre-concert talk hosted by David Garland at 7:30**
