Cappella Clausura Presents ‘ORDO VIRTUTUM’

February 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Cappella Clausura is pleased to reprise Hildegard von Bingen’s ORDO VIRTUTUM. We stage it in modern dress: our conceit is that the 18 Virtues work for small NGO. Lending a new gender fluidity to the Virtues, both men and women sing the various roles. The devil is a female enticing the young soul Anima to love possessions, whatever their cost, thus renewing this extraordinary work’s relevance to today’s audiences.
