4/21: Romeo & Julia Kören at CMA

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 4:50 PM

Back in 1991, a group of singers hired to perform musical interludes during a Stockholm Royal Dramatic Theatre production of Romeo and Juliet stayed together after the show closed. Led by artistic director Benoit Mamlberg, and accompanied by lute and percussion, Romeo & Julia Kören play a range of styles — from Italian renaissance to French baroque, with a few Slavic folk songs thrown in for good measure. Nineteen years later, the group is still at it, presenting songs as scenes, with lavish costumes and staging to set them in motion. Romeo & Julia Kören make their Cleveland debut with a “madrigal comedy” featuring music by Claudio Montverdi, followed by a collection of songs about love and melancholy, as part of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Viva and Gala series. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at CMA’s Gartner Auditorium (11150 East Blvd., 216.421.7350). Tickets: $39. — Michael Gill
