Mezzo-soprano Christine Rice blends her dulcet tones with the music of Jonathan Cohen and Les Violons du Roy, vividly bringing to life all the nuances of love lost, forbidden, or dying through dramatic compositions of unparalleled beauty and power.

There will be a pre-concert conversation at 7:10 p.m. with actor Lorraine Côté, who will discuss Phaedra, the character she plays with such brio and passion.

This concert will also be presented on Saturday, November 30, 2019, at 8 p.m. at Montréal Museum of Fine Arts' Bourgie Hall.

Listen to Purcell’s aria When I am laid in Earth, interpreted by Christine Rice and the Academy of Ancient Music:
