Please join Musica Nuova for Monteverdi's rarely-performed Il Ballo delle Ingrate, (The Dance of the Ungrateful Women). This 1608 masterpiece carries the creepy moral that women who don't obey men will go to hell! An original pastiche of Monteverdi songs, new English dialogue, and Baroque dance take that message and turn it around, bringing out the humor and drama in this elegant early opera.
