Catskill Mountain Foundation presents the Labyrinth Ensemble’s “The Double Distress,” an evening of drama and intrigue in an eighteenth century London theater setting. Returning to the mountain top for the fourth time, Music Director Richard Kolb and Stage Director Tracy Cowart lead the Labyrinth Ensemble in a delightful mixture of florid virtuosity and comedy, solidly grounded on authoritative scholarship and a thorough command of historical performance practice. The ensemble brings to life the ravishing beauty and wit of 17th- and 18th-century chamber music on period instruments.
In this staged story within a story, the characters vie for affection and applause in a world where orange-sellers in the aisles carry flirtatious messages between box seats and into the wings. Featuring songs and instrumental numbers by Henry Purcell and John Eccles, two of the leading composers of theater music of the baroque era, and accompanied by lutes, baroque violins, recorders, and triple harp, “The Double Distress” unfolds a story of complicated relationships.
The Labyrinth Ensemble includes: Tracy Cowart (mezzo-soprano & stage director); Fiona Gillespie (soprano); Bradley King (tenor); Theresa Salomon (violin); Sian Ricketts (baroque oboe & recorder); Patricia Ann Neely (violone); Christa Patton (triple harp); Richard Kolb (theorbo, archlute, & music director).
