About the Event
Sestina presents a programme of dramatic dialogues of love, death and visions as part of Belfast Music Society's Northern Lights Mini-Fest 2021 in partnership with Belfast International Arts Festival 2021. Built around the execution ballad Fortune my Foe, the programme will explore aspects of the supernatural with settings of Saul and the Witch of Endor, and love in all forms: 'distracted' (with an excerpt from Matthew Locke's Psyche), 'requited' (with Mazzochi's Dialogo) and 'filial' (in the drama of Carissimi's oratorio Jephte).
We are grateful to the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and our sponsors, Exitex Ltd. for supporting this performance.
