Just as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Two evocative cantatas by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (Pyrame et Thisbé and Héro et Leandre) and excerpts from Rameau’s groundbreaking opera Hippolyte et Aricie relate the timeless tales of star-crossed lovers in this new program featuring acclaimed soprano Clara Rot tsolk (“supple and stylish…unflaggingly attractive” – Gramophone) and tenor Jason McStoots (“an exquisite singer and a fine actor, rounding out heartfelt performances with meaningful gestures and facial expressions” – Cleveland Plain Dealer).
