ARTEK: Intermedii from La Pellegrina

  • St. Jean Baptiste Roman Catholic Church 1067-1071 Lexington Ave New York, NY (map)

The 1589 Intermedii are six musical interludes written to be performed with the play La Pellegrina for the 1589 Florentine wedding of Ferdinand I de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, with Christine de Lorraine. As a point of reference, the Intermedii are the type of musical/theatrical spectacle that can only be compared to the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in modern times.
