Johann Heinrich Schmelzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose, a hybrid opera/oratorio, tells the story of the Virgin Mary after the death of Christ, as she interacts with Angels, Apostles, and others. TENET’s singers will perform the cast of characters in collaboration with ACRONYM to offer an exciting, modern-day premiere of the work since the 17th century. ACRONYM has devoted much energy to unearthing, transcribing, performing, and recording many of these long-forgotten gems from the baroque and they rediscovered and transcribed the score for Schmeltzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose for this occasion.
