On the 400th anniversary of the composer Barbara Strozzi's birth, be transported to a palazzo in Venice, where Strozzi's father - an opera librettist - is holding his meetings.

Gain an insight into what life was life for an independent female musician, living in a cosmopolitan city alive with art and intellectual debate, at a time when opera was becoming popular and women were commonly confined to lives of prayer or servitude. In this debut performance, Wise Child Theatre and Fieri Consort present an immersive theatre experience, exploring the early years of the life of Barbara Strozzi, a 17th-century Venetian woman who become one of the most prolific composers of her time.
