welcome to perolabarroca.com

The website related to an exciting Arts Council England funded music-drama celebrating the extraordinary life and music of one of the baroque era's most overlooked and under-rated composers, Domenico Zipoli. This new innovative project is a musical drama of fun, vespers and vespas a baroque fairytale telling the story of seventeenth century Italian composer Domenico Zipoli’s journey from Rome to the rainforests of South America (complete with magical pearl necklace), to teach music to the indigenous inhabitants. Musician Mark Latimer, executive producer Heulwen Phillips and director Emma Rivlin have combined the beautiful sounds of baroque music with brothers Grimm-style fairytale fantasy in a wildly imaginative clash of cultures, music and theatre.
