Cape Consort: Heart/Attack


The Cape Consort returned to The Fugard Studio with a new show entitled Heart/Attack, a follow-up to the successful Matrix of the Madrigal series, a captivating examination of composer Monteverdi’s vocal music compositions, launched earlier this year.

These moving renditions of musical pieces of the past explore the intricacies of love and the emotions experienced by those trapped by its dangerous net; the passionate ensemble likens the concept of love to war -lovers are warriors, and a painful reaction accompanies each act of pleasure.
