Madness Unleashed

  • Cove Street Arts 71 Cove Street Portland, ME 04101 (map)

Murder. Madness. Windmills? Join Palaver Strings for a wild romp through the heart of Enlightenment-era Europe, where baroque manners give way to larger-than-life emotions. We’ll take you through the streets and taverns of Madrid at dusk, the travels of Don Quixote, and the passion and rancor of Gesualdo and Geminiani. Hold on to your hats and remember Cervantes’ words: “Too much sanity may be madness, and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
