Location: Main Theatre

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Katherine McKee, Music Director) acclaimed East-Indian infused production ("Hildegard's music rang out anew," ... ) of Ordo Virtutum (The Play of the Virtues) by the medieval mystic nun Hildegard von Bingen returns! One of the earliest extant liturgical musical dramas that provided the basis for the art form we now know as opera, Ordo Virtutum tells the story of the challenges of The Human Soul (Anime) as she is guided by The Virtues led by their queen Humility, to obtain wholeness of the spirit. Our stellar singers and dancers will be joined by our returning original-cast, internationally-renowned instrumentalists, Deepak Ram (bansuri) and Diana Rowan (Celtic harp), and local favorite, Todd Jolly (percussion) with the acclaimed baritone Zachary Gordin making his company debut as The Devil.
