Hobby Center for the Performing Arts
The 2014/15 season opener is dedicated to the spirited and uplifting world of flight—from the natural world of the birds and the bees to the mythological figure Icarus, who soared too close to the sun. French and Italian Baroque chamber works animate this program, featuring French-Italian soprano Céline Ricci and viola da gambist Mary Springfels in G. F. Handel’s evocative Tra le fiamme. Ars Lyrica debuts with this program at the world-renowned Berkeley Early Music Festival on June 3, 2014.
