A lecture recital performance of the secular cantata by Camilla de Rossi (c. 1705-1710). Besides her surviving work, which includes several oratorios in addition to her pastoral musical-drama, Frà Dori, e Fileno, very little is known about Camilla de Rossi, self-dubbed "La Romana." Since cantatas historically lacked such production elements as sets and props, we will bring Dori and Fileno’s romantic story to life through historical gesture. A pre-concert lecture by USC doctoral student Marisa De Silva will inform audiences about gesture as a historical performance practice in Camilla de Rossi’s time and place.
