Programmes - Non-choreographed - 'What passion cannot Music raise and quell!'

Philippa Hyde soprano
Daisy Vatalaro baroque cello
Helen Rogers harpsichord

Revenge, despair, rage and ecstasy! Passion, in all its guises, is the theme of this programme. Hear Octavia's despair turn to fury as she contemplates Nero's unfaithfulness, a set of fiery Variations on the frenzied dance 'La Follia' and a grief stricken lover's lament.
