Overview

Vision: The Imagined Testimony of Hildegard von Bingen

This exciting multimedia experience of light, song, music and storytelling is an atmospheric candlelit show with an imagined narrative by the extraordinary Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179) as she looks back at her life, alongside performance of her mesmeric chant. The show gives an insight into the painful visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life, covering some of the core emotional moments in her life as Hildegard lies on her deathbed, revisiting meaningful episodes from her past, including the moment when she was taken from her family at the age of 8 and when she made the decision at the age of 42 to finally talk about and write down her visions.

The Telling features Clare Norburn (soprano/director), Ariane Prussner (mezzo soprano), Leah Stuttard (harp) plus an actress to be confirmed. Lighting design is by Natalie Rowland and Pitch Black Lighting.

Saturday 23rd March at St Mary’s Church from 7.30 pm.

Tickets in advance £13, under 18s £5 – available from www.dartington.org/whats-on or telephone Dartington Box Office 01803 847070. On the door £14/£5
