Sep 1: Baroque with L'Arpeggiata

A light-hearted evening on a serious note with the jazzy Baroque ensemble L’Arpeggiata that brings the 17th century to life with the man-of-war Vasa as a backdrop. This evening’s pre-concert talk focuses on approaches to learning in Italy and Sweden prompted by the Vasa’s magnificent sculptures.

    THE VASA SHIP’S SCULPTURES

    The Vasa Museum

    The concert will be preceded by a conversation about the Vasa ship’s sculptures and approaches to learning in Sweden and Italy in the 17th century. Why does the figurehead show twenty Roman emperors; what does it say about approaches to learning and historiography at the time? A conversation between Anna Maria Forssberg, associate professor in history, and Stefano Fogelberg Rota, associate professor in literature at Södertörn University.

    BAROQUE WITH L'ARPEGGIATA

    The Vasa Museum

    While classic opera was born with Monteverdi in northern Italy, popular opera and commedia dell’arte developed in Naples in the 17th century. This is where the European Baroque ensemble L’Arpeggiata find their inspiration. They have delighted opera audiences across the world since 2000 with their improvisational concerts featuring tarantellas and other dances as well as cantatas. The dynamic ensemble and soloists perform their lighthearted programme in a period setting at the Vasa Museum.
