In the City of Ladies, every stone tells the story of a woman. Christine de Pizan created the city as a place where women would be free from the limitations imposed by society and where they could explore their own limits as women. Servir Antico tells the story of Christine de Pizan and her ally Martin Le Franc through spoken texts from the literary works of both authors set to music. With works such as Gilles Binchois’ “Christine’s Lament” and “Le Champion des Dames,” based on Le Franc’s poem, this concert will be a tribute to all women.
Music by Gilles Binchois (1400−1460) and others.
This concert is part of the Lissewegedag. Read all about this day and the discounted day pass here.
