Ensemble Caprice

Héctor Armienta – New work (world premiere)
Antonio Vivaldi – Motezuma, RV 723

Holding a mirror to our shared legacy, “The Other Conquest” is a musical and dramatic exploration – from Antonio Vivaldi’s opera Motezuma, RV 723, to a work composed specifically for this performance by Héctor Armienta with a libretto by Redmond, Washington’s Poet Laureate, Raúl Sánchez. “The Other Conquest” asks how far have we come in 500 years and where are we going?
