Johann Heinrich Schmelzer: Le Memorie Dolorose

  • Church of St. Luke in the Fields 487 Hudson Street New York, NY, 10014 United States (map)

“Johann Heinrich Schmelzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose, a hybrid opera/oratorio, tells the story of the Virgin Mary after the death of Christ, as she interacts with Angels, Apostles, and others. TENET’s singers will perform the cast of characters in collaboration with ACRONYM to offer an exciting U.S. premiere. ACRONYM has devoted much energy to unearthing, transcribing, performing, and recording many of these long-forgotten gems from the baroque and they rediscovered and transcribed the score for Schmelzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose for this occasion.” (TENET Vocal Artists)
