FIVE VOICES

Music and lyrics by Peter Mills
Book by Peter Mills
and Cara Reichel
Directed by Cara Reichel
Music directed by Daniel Feyer

Mar. 6 –  Mar. 17, 2013 at the
West End Theatre
(263 West 86th St., NYC)

Set amidst the political intrigue, religious conflict, and artistic vibrancy of the late Renaissance, DEATH FOR FIVE VOICES explores the dark harmonies of Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa — who is remembered both for his unusually complex madrigals and sacred music, as well as the extravagantly vicious double murder of his wife, Maria D‘Avalos, and her lover, Fabrizio Carafa.  Through a sophisticated choral score, this intimate and thrilling new musical investigates the source of both sexual and creative passion, and the fine line between madness and genius.

Ryan Bauer-Walsh*, Wilson Bridges*, Peter Saide*, Meghan McGeary*,
Hannah Jane McMurray, Diane Phelan*
and Thom Sesma*
