Opera Hildegard

Steven Kamperman has written an opera based on Hildegard von Bingen’s Gregorian ‘opera avant la lettre’ Ordo Virtutum (Play of the Virtues). Von Bingen’s melodies appear, sometimes in a recognisable form, but are most intriguing when approached from a new perspective. From baroque to modern, and sometimes even with a touch of blues: Kamperman blends everything together. At Orgelpark Amsterdam.
