To open its 20th Anniversary Season, Seraphic Fire explores the juxtaposition and intersection of love and war. Paul Crabtree’s When David Heard sets the tragic biblical love story of David sending his son Absalom to war in aching counterpoint with disgraced Cardinal Bernard Law’s exclamations upon meeting Catholic victims of abuse. Peace comes in human form in Ileana Perez Velazquez’s Tu Paz Mia, a Seraphic Fire-commissioned work. Selections from Claudio Monteverdi’s Madrigals of War and Love round out the program.
Seraphic Fire performances are not recommended for children under the age of 8. We do ask that you carefully consider your child’s ability to sit through the performance, as some concerts are fairly long.
Teens and young adults ages 13-22 can buy tickets for $5 using the Get Tickets button below. With the purchase of one $5 ticket for someone within the age range, a second $5 ticket can be purchased for an individual of any age to join them.
