Ordo Virtutum

February 22, 2020

$15 – $35

Hildegard von Bingen’s ORDO VIRTUTUM is what LeClair has called the very first opera, written around 1150 by Abbess St. Hildegard von Bingen.

We have fully staged it in modern dress; our conceit is that the 18 Virtues work for small NGO. Lending a new gender fluidity to the Virtues, both men and women sing the various roles. The devil is female, perhaps a corporate raider, enticing the young soul Anima to love possessions, whatever their cost, thus renewing this extraordinary work’s relevance to today’s audiences.

LeClair has transcribed the entire opera and created accompaniment parts for vielle, flute, harp and percussion.

CC will be presenting this at Wellesley College as well in February of 2020.
