Venice Music Project: a night at the Opera

¡Reserve ahora! Solicitud

Desde EUR 30

Picture yourself walking into a Venetian church.
You are about to hear music that was written to be performed in this space or a similar one in Venice over 300 years ago. Since its inception in 2012, Venice Music Project Ensemble has worked tirelessly to uncover, restore and share lost music from the magnificent Venetian Baroque period with the rest of the world. With this dedication to detail and history, we have unearthed a vast treasure trove of important music manuscripts, and you are among the first people to hear that music in modern day!
 Every concert contains at least one of these "Hidden Treasures," and several concerts within each season are entirely dedicated to that theme.
Join our cheering section and help these composers find their voices again. And, as always, we will Ba-ROCK you!
