Empowered Women Trilogy: Talk by Fiona Maddocks about Hildegard Von Bingen

  • Fiona Maddocks Speaker
6:30pm, SJE Arts

Blurring the boundaries of what a concert is, The Telling bring you three intimate “concert-theatre” pieces to mark International Women’s Day 2019, transporting you back in time through plaintive ballads, lively dance music and dramatic narrative. The Empowered Women Trilogy celebrates the lives of three extraordinary women who defy the strictures of their time and whose stories are both of their time but also startlingly contemporary.

Fiona Maddocks, The Observer’s classical music critic, discusses Hildegard’s life and writings in the context of crusade and schism, scientific discovery and cultural revolution.
