Bittersweet Obsessions: Monteverdi & Bach

Bittersweet Obsessions.jpg


Join the Brandenburg for an inventive concert experience, a dramatic staged event that will traverse the highs and lows of emotional experience: three stories of heartbreak, passion and comic revelry in a suppressive world.

This is the emotional narrative of one woman in three stories, she tells us her stories of beautiful sadness, of obsession turned from despair into laughter, still tinged with grief.

Directed by Constantine Costi and dressed by Charlotte Mungomery and Genevieve Graham, the creative team behind the Brandenburg’s runaway success Handel’s Messiah, Bittersweet Obsessions will have you weeping and laughing in equal measure
