Ars Minerva presents "La Circe"



Ars Minerva presents

La Circe is an opera composed in 1665 by Pietro-Andrea Ziani with a libretto by Cristoforo Ivanovich, sung in Italian with English supertitles.

La Circe's plot is based on the adventures of Circe, the goddess and magician of Greek mythology made famous by Homer's Odyssey and Ovid's Metamorphoses. After Ulysses escapes Circe's clutches, the outraged enchantress remains on her island with a number of unlucky captives who will fall victim to her resentment and manipulations.

La Circe was created in Vienna in 1665 for the birthday of Emperor Leopold I. Despite the beauty of the music, La Circe fell into oblivion and has never been performed since. Ars Minerva's production will feature eight singers, aerial dancer Katherine Hutchinson, and a small orchestra of five instrumentalists led by Derek Tam.
