The Lovers’ Bane

The Lovers’ Bane:



The Story of Tristan and Yseut, as told in music of the 13th Century

The potion had been drunk; the secret lovers exposed. Tristan is in exile and has become a knight of the round table. He and Yseut (Isolde) will yearn for one another for the rest of their days. All that is left to them is the poetry and music through which they put out their hearts. Their tragedy was told and retold throughout the Middle Ages, and, in more modern times by Richard Wagner.  Two precious 13th Century French manuscripts contain imaginative recreations of what their songs might have been like. Performers Shira Kammen, vielle and harp; Christopher LeCluyse, tenor; Emily Noël, soprano; Drew Minter, baritone and harp; and Mary Springfels, vielle and citole; will present evocative words, music, and images from the period.
