“Arian | nairA — Looking for Caterina” is a contemporary music-theatrical adaptation of the life story of Caterina Martinelli, singer and muse of Claudio Monteverdi. The piece sets out to find this extraordinary young woman, behind the historical sources and behind the one monumental event of her life—her early death.
A commissioned composition by Basel composer Lukas Huber on letters and texts related to Caterina's life and music by Claudio Monteverdi, which is closely linked to her fate, form the musical basis for the artistic exploration. Highly associative and guided by the inspiration of each individual, it is an attempt to reconstruct a Caterina Martinelli as she never existed.
Tickets are CHF 35-70 for adults and CHF 15 for students (box office only).
