Les Délices teams up once again with Boston’s acclaimed Blue Heron (Scott Metcalfe, dir.) to present Guillaume de Machaut’s Remède de Fortune (c. 1440). One of Machaut’s musical-poetic masterpieces, the Remède relates the story of a bumbling lover who – with help from Hope and by Fortune’s good grace – ultimately gets the girl. Singers Martin Near, Jason McStoots, and Owen McIntosh join Debra Nagy (medieval winds), Scott Metcalfe (vielle and harp), and Charlie Weaver (lute) for this not to be missed program complete with projected supertitles and gorgeous manuscript images illustrating the story.
Concert Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes.
N.B. The concert will be performed with a 15-minute intermission.
