Just as in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Indeed, this tragic theme has inspired composers for centuries. The evocative cantatas Léandre et Héro and Pirame et Tisbé by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault and excerpts from Rameau’s groundbreaking opera Hippolyte et Aricie relate the timeless tales of star-crossed lovers in this program featuring soprano Clara Rottsolk and tenor Jason McStoots.
