In collaboration with Guildhall School of Music & Drama, this mini-opera recreates Monteverdi’s thrilling vision of an epic sword fight in music; complementing our current exhibition The Noble Art of the Sword: Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe.
This free, drop-in performance will take place promenade style in the Great Gallery.
Combattimento will form part of a fuller programme of music, drama and talks at 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Friday 25 May. Click here for more information about evening performances, for which booking is essential.
