Baroque Treasures from Peru and Europe

Baroque Treasures from Peru and Europe

Take a journey back to the times of Philip V, and enjoy baroque dances, arias, and Roque Ceruti’s sublime Misa de Lima.

Teatro Lirico of DC presents an exciting new program that celebrates the music scene of 18th century Peru. Featuring music from the court, the streets and the church, this concert includes pieces by Spanish and native Peruvian composers associated with the Vice-Royalty of Peru.

Acclaimed chorus director Thomas Colohan, whose work with the Washington Master Chorale has been described as skillfully wrought and moving by The Washington Post, leads a talented cast of Baroque artists. This program includes dances composed by Spanish composers Mathias Maestro and Lucas Ruiz de Riyabaz.
