UNC Opera Workshop, directed by Marc Callahan
Visual works by artist Tama Hochbaum and additional music by composer Allen Anderson
Ordo Virtutum by Hildegard von Bingen
A soul that must cross the threshold to walk among the blistering sins of the flesh—where are her knights? Who are those fierce warriors that appear like clouds to save her from despair? These are the visions of Hildegard von Bingen. Known as Saint Hildegard and Sibyl of the Rhine, she was a German Benedictine abbess and polymath, prolific writer, composer, philosopher, mystic, visionary, medical writer, and feminist during the High Middle Ages.
$10 general admission, $5 students & UNC faculty/staff
