About the event
At its core, La Calisto is a story of betrayal, ego, and the willingness to misrepresent oneself in order to abuse another. Such experiences are not restricted to the ancient past but are still very much present in our everyday lives. To this end, the emotional relevance of this story is highlighted and juxtaposed against the stunning music of Cavalli.
This is an in-person event with a private stream available to the NEC community - on Nov. 16 and 17 only - here: https://necmusic.edu/live.
