SANTA ROSALIA

SANTA ROSALIA

  • Trinity Church Wall Street

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**

PROGRAM

Santa Rosalia (1687)
Oratorio by Bonaventura Aliotti (1640-1690)



Tickets starting from $25
