THE MORPHING BEAST: LE ROMAN DE FAUVEL —
A MEDIEVAL FABLE IN POETRY AND MUSIC
Founded in 1954, The Boston Camerata is one of the most storied early music ensembles in the world. The Camerata returns to the Festival stage with an entertainment like no other, as they perform the acerbic and witty medieval satire, Le Roman de Fauvel. The metamorphosing horse Fauvel is the protagonist of an acerbic and witty fable, satirizing religious and political life in fourteenth century France, and laden with implications for contemporary society. The semi-staged production offers a generous selection of music and text from one of the most famous of all medieval manuscripts.
