  De Warme Winkel and The Netherlands Chamber Choir erect a monumental production – Gesualdo – on the foundations of everything that attracts and repels us as human beings: the trinity Violence / Art / Sex. Starting points are the collaboration between De Warme Winkel and the renowned Netherlands Chamber Choir and themes from the life and work of composer and prince Carlo Gesualdo (1566-1613). Gesualdo lived an anguished, controversial life in his palaces in Southern Italy. The contrast between choir and theatre company, between Gesualdo’s perverse excesses and lucid music, is the engine powering a search for ‘the sublime’ – that which is abhorrent and yet at the same time irresistible.
