The Newberry Consort Presents: Oracles, Prophets, and Dreams

March 17 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm CDT

$10 – $65

Enter the mysterious otherworld of prophecy and dreams…

The Newberry Consort introduces the mysterious world of sybils, prophets, and oracles, centering on the haunting Sibylline Prophecies of Orlande de Lassus. Voices join with lute, recorders, reeds, and sackbut to perform works of the high Renaissance that warn, whisper, and herald the future. Paired with projections by musicologist and graphic artist Shawn Keener, this concert invites audiences to enter the world of dreams. Get swept up in Jonah’s story from the belly of the whale, Jacob’s evocative night visions, the prayers of Judith the prophet, and Jeremiah’s visions, all set to evocative music by Senfl, Rogier, Monte, Agricola, and Tallis. While including prophetic texts familiar to many, this program predominantly centers on the words of female prophets. This small-scale vocal and instrumental concert is our most intimate of the season.

Pre-concert lectures begin one hour and 15 minutes before every performance.
