Baroquen Hearts

December 11, 2021 Place: War Memorial Chapel

Megan makes her directorial debut as the BJU Opera Workshop presents a pastiche of English Baroque opera scenes, titled “Baroquen Hearts.” This pastiche, woven together by Dr. Stapleton, highlights the “b’roquen” hearts of 17th Century England’s most famous mythological divas: Dido, Galatea, and Venus, with Cupid at the helm of mischief. Performed in BJU’s beautiful War Memorial Chapel, this echoing space, surrounded by Benjamin West’s magnificent Rococo paintings (1738-1820), makes an ideal setting for an audience to dwell in the Baroque world.

The director will also step in as performer, filling in for the role of Galatea due to some unfortunate health issues that forced the original Galatea to withdraw from the role. The cast wishes this colleague a swift and full recovery.

Catch the livestream of “Baroquen Hearts” at 6pm Eastern, 7pm Central, by viewing the following link:
