A Mad, Burning Desire

Sat., Oct. 19


An issues-minded musical ensemble, Burning River Baroque launched its season earlier this year with A Mad, Burning Desire, a show designed to shed light on "unconventional 17th-century women and issues surrounding mental health." A Mad, Burning Desire tells the story of the first English actresses who gained the legal right to act on the public stage in the early 1660s. Co-directors Paula Maust (harpsichord) and Malina Rauschenfels (soprano) will engage in dialogues with the audience about "how the perception of mental health issues in the early modern period directly relates to the stigma surrounding mental health in contemporary times." The group brings a special performance of the show to Blank Canvas CLE tonight at 7:30. There is a suggested donation of $10 to $20.
