3 Dreams

In Cambridge for one night only.

Poet and scholar, Lorenzo Bastida (Florence), recites passages from La divina commedia, focussing on the theme of dreaming.

The text is interspersed with new music composed by Stephane Crayton (King’s College, Cambridge) for two violins—one baroque, one modern. The music plays on the physical and notated history of the instruments, and will be performed live by Stephane and Rachel Stroud.

The event takes place Saturday 29th October 2022 at 8pm in The Round Church in central Cambridge, a space that can rival even Dante’s age. Duration approx. 1 hr.

Tickets can now be offered for free thanks to funding. Please indicate attendance via the following link: https://www.stephanecrayton.com/3-dreams.
