Collegium enters the world of French Baroque musical theater with its presentation of Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s miniature opera Actéon.  A cautionary tale for all those who hunt or go to the beach, Charpentier’s opera inventively interprets the myth of Actaeon, the mythological hunter who, caught gazing upon Artemis as she bathed, was changed into a stag and subsequently devoured by his own hounds. Grand choruses, moving solos, and abundant instrumental music come together to make this an unforgettable experience.
