Who is the “Other”? …Exoticism in Baroque music and dance

We gaze upon the exotic characters in early entertainments through a lens fashioned by the composers and librettists themselves revealing an imagined foreigner. As in a dream these “exotics” are products of our own minds.  The “Other” is us.Christa Patton and Friends

Christa Patton, harp is joined by Baroque dancer, Peggy Murray, Eloy Cortinez, recorder, and Mary Riccardi, violin in a program featuring music and dance of the exotic characters from L’Europe Galante by André Campra, Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Jean-Baptiste Lully and more.
