#SheToo, Her Gift/Douce dame jolie: Guillaume de Machaut’s Last Affair | The Boston Camerata
Sun February 14 @ 2:30 pm
Anne Azéma, artistic director
Douce dame jolie, the lady fair and sweet, was well beyond the reach of the courtly romance that Machaut, consummate poet and musicians of the middle ages, primarily penned. In this transcendent web of song and verse, made so wonderfully worldly by Boston Camerata and young artists from Longy, her youthful otherworldly appeal torments her older suitor, much as a young love would torment the aging Machaut in Le voir dit, the true story, literally “to see he says” – let this story speak, or sing, for itself.
Tickets will be available soon.
