FIA present Bray Dinner Theater
FLINT — The Flint Institute of Arts presents a Bray Series Dinner Theater, Galileo’s Daughters, on March 9, at 6 p.m. in FIA’s Isabel Hall.
Author Dava Sobel narrates the story of the 17th century revolutions in science and music, complemented by the musicianship of soprano Sarah Pillow, viola da gambist Mary Anne Ballard, and lutenist Ronn McFarlane.
Inspired by Dava Sobel’s book, Galileo’s Daughter, Sarah Pillow, Mary Anne Ballard, and Ronn McFarlane bring alive through music and readings the era of Suor Maria Celeste, whose letters to her famous father make vivid the spiritual and daily life of a 17th century woman.
Galileo’s Daughters is a Baroque ensemble based in New York City and is the creation of three individual musicians with multi-faceted experiences in the worlds of early music, opera, jazz, drama and musical scholarship.
