Medicine and Mortality - Life, Death and Beyond -

Ensemble Molière presents a musical performance with narration of Medicine and Mortality, featuring medical themed pieces including Le Tableau de l'opération de la Taille by Marin Marais, as well as music about life and death from the same period in France.

"Dare to spend a day in a 17th-century French hospital!
From a bladder operation with no anaesthetic, to an asthmatic patient, convalescence and a doctor’s appointment. The journey comes to a close with the glorious bells of St Genevieve and Polymnie, the goddess of hymn, bids farewell to the souls as they rise to heaven."

Music by Telemann, Couperin, Marais and Rameau. 

Players: Alice Earll, Flavia Hirte, Kate Conway, Satoko Doi-Luck and Jakab Kaufmann.
