Bella donna

For their second concert Apotropaïk focus on ‘La bella donna’, the idealised woman praised in the courtly love tradition, but also the sublime, poisonous flower well known to witches for the preparation of their potions. Starting from a canso de trobairitz (female alter ego of the troubadour) and progressing through monodic and polyphonic songs of the 13th and 14th centuries, the programme reveals a mosaic of fascinating female figures

Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
