THE MARY ROSE
Friday, May 5, 7 pm
Saturday, May 6, 7 pm


Although most famous (or infamous) for his many wives and for breaking England away from the Catholic church, Henry VIII played a vital role in his nation’s economic and military future as well, not least of which as the de facto father of her navy. In this program, we trace the trajectory of his reign through the history of his flagship the Mary Rose. We explore the music of the royalty as well as the lower classes working on the ship, travel with her to foreign lands, and follow her to her ultimate fate at the bottom of the English Channel.

 

Trobár welcomes guest artists Debra Nagy, Allen Otte, Daniel Swenberg, and Peter Walker for this season finale program!

DAUGHTERS OF LIGHT
Friday, January 27th, 7 pm
Saturday, January 28th, 7 pm
Sunday, January 29th, 7 pm

Medieval nuns lived out their theology in a very tangible manner, literally setting themselves and their lives apart for the Lord they awaited. In Daughters of Light, we explore the visceral experience of the divine embodied by these women. The program particularly features the music and visions of two abbesses, the ninth-century Byzantine-Greek Kassia, and the twelfth-century German Hildegard von Bingen.

Trobár is joined by guest artists Rosemary Heredos and Nadia Tarnawsky for this winter program. 

 

ROBIN & MARION

Friday, September 16th, 7 pm  |  City Church, Cleveland Heights

Saturday, September 17th, 3 pm  |  City Church, Cleveland Heights

A beautiful and savvy shepherdess, her dopey but devoted shepherd paramour, and their village friends encounter a villainous knight with evil intentions. Can they run him off and return to their idyllic pastoral life? Full of witty banter, toe-tapping tunes, and silly antics, this 13th-c. proto-musical by Adam de la Halle, in English adaptation by Lucy Cross and Allison Monroe, proves itself a timeless comedy with a serious undercurrent addressing privilege and power dynamics.

 

Allison Monroe and Elena Mullins are joined by guest artists Nathan Dougherty, Ellen Hargis, Allen Otte, Sian Ricketts, and Edward Vogel for this season opener!

 

We welcome children/young adults especially for this show, recommending it in particular to those around grade 4 and up. Due to a few suggestive scenarios and the complexity of the dialogue, it may not be appropriate for younger children.
