    BEMF Chamber Opera Double-Bill

    BEMF turns again to Marc-Antoine Charpentier with its fourth annual Chamber Opera Series production, originally performed in November, 2011. Charpentier, the composer of Actéon in BEMF’s first presentation of chamber operas in 2008, is the creator of both works in this year’s double bill exploring the transcendental power of music. The tragic La Descente d’Orphée aux Enfers tells the famous story of Orphée who decends into the underworld to rescue his beloved Euridice using his musical charms. La Couronne de Fleurs, based on a text by Molière, depicts a musical contest in tribute to Louis XIV as shepherds vie for a crown of flowers from the goddess Flora for the most beautiful and eloquent aria. These miniature masterpieces showcase one of the great composers of the French Baroque.
