Lessons in Love
Please note, this event has expired.
Les Délices collaborates with Boston’s award-winning Blue Heron to present Lessons in Love, a program of hypnotic medieval songs inspired by the Romance of the Rose.
Lessons in Love sees Les Délices return to the world of the Romance of the Rose, where the allegorical character Hope (Esperance) sustains a courtly lover through the thousand pains of lovesickness and teaches him to find delight instead of suffering. Presented in collaboration with Boston’s Blue Heron, this program explores a group of 14th-century songs in the hypnotic late-medieval Ars subtilior style that draw inspiration from each other’s words and music.
