About the Event

The intoxicating experience of attending mass in the past can be likened to going to a club today. However, dismissing this comparison as trivial would be a mistake, as Monteverdi's 'Christmas Vespers' at St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice proves. During the early Baroque period, the cathedral became the ultimate destination as the Christmas season approached. Monteverdi's composition transformed the cathedral into a mesmerizing soundscape that continues to be talked about by generations. The music enveloped the listeners, regardless of age or social status, in an intoxicating echo that lingers in their memories. Attempting to describe the overpowering aesthetics of the Baroque era would be an understatement.
