The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra Jeannette Sorrell, direction and harpsichord Amanda Powell, soprano Jeffrey Strauss, baritone Ronnie Malley, oud and accordion Daphna Mor, winds "Apollo's Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music."—BBC Music Magazine Internationally renowned period-instrument band Apollo's Fire recreates the vibrant and prolific mash-up of music and poetry happening in 16th- and 17th-century Jerusalem when it brings their acclaimed new program to The Met for one unforgettable evening. This tour of the four quarters of Old Jerusalem, where Jews, Muslims, and Christians co-existed in relative harmony, includes Sabbath prayers, Sephardic ballads, Arabic love songs, and selections from Monteverdi's iconic Vespers of 1610 that echo the rapturous singing of Jewish cantors and the Muslim call to prayer. The troupe of 26 dynamic performers, including musicians of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian backgrounds, joins in a celebration of shared values.
