Mission Statement

Hailed by the New York Times for its "flair for the dramatic and a taste for unusual performance spaces," early music company Musica Nuova brings new perspectives to Baroque music by heightening the dramatic qualities intrinsic to the repertoire. The goal of Musica Nuova is to create performances that transcend the standard concert experience of early music, providing a framework to engage newcomers and offer a new level of understanding to experienced listeners. Through staging and storytelling, Musica Nuova weaves storylines based on the meaning of the songs.

Description

During its initial years in Boston, Musica Nuova was presented on concert series with the Society for Historically Informed Performance (SoHIP), Bates College, MIT Chapel, Boston Early Music Festival Fringe Concerts, and Newton Library, and was Ensemble-in-Residence at the Amherst Early Music Festival. After relocating to New York in the 2011-12 season, Musica Nuova produced its first full-length opera, Il Ballo delle Ingrate, at (Le) Poisson Rouge, and performed at the International Early Music Festival in Riga, Latvia, on the invitation of the U.S. Consulate.
