Renaissance ensemble Sonnambula named Ensemble in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Monday, July 9, 2018   (0 Comments)

"Filling the galleries of The Met Cloisters with exquisitely presented ancient music will rescue the musical past from the prison of the archive so that it might inspire the future historians among us."

—Elizabeth Weinfield, Sonnambula

Nestled in Upper Manhattan's verdant parkland, The Met Cloisters is a sublime and richly layered venue suggesting multiple narratives ripe for performative explorations. This season, MetLiveArts celebrates The Met Cloisters with a site-specific series that upends the idea of the historically-informed performance with an infusion of what the Early Music ensemble Sonnambula calls the historically-informed present.
