Aberdeen Musical Society - John Eccles' Judgement of Paris

DATE: 14 February 2014
Time: 6pm
Venue: Cowdray Hall, Aberdeen

The University's Early Music Ensembles and the Aberdeen Musical Society present a fully staged and costumed performance of Eccles' Opera and Libretto; The Judgement of Paris.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with a short, fully-staged opera on the Triumph of Love, as the shepherd Paris is charged by the messenger god Hermes to judge a beauty contest among three goddesses. With bribery, backstabbing, and the Golden Apple of Discord!

One of 4 operas composed in 1700 on the same libretto, as part of an audience-judged "Musick Prize", for the purpose of promoting English-language opera.  

Musical direction: Ralph Stelzenmüller and Caroline Ritchie
Stage direction: Frauke Jürgensen
