A tale of love, duty, and madness.
Love is a powerful thing and leads us down unexpected paths. What logic would you be willing to ignore? What risks would you be willing to take? And who would you be willing to sacrifice? Ponder your answers to these questions and then see how the heroes and heroines of ORLANDO deal with the forces of love, duty, and madness.

Dorian Baroque is a New York-based ensemble of musicians who perform on period instruments, presenting orchestral, chamber and vocal music ranging from the early baroque period to the present. The diverse musical backgrounds of their performers bring a distinct philosophy to music making that is focused on exploring the versatility of historical instruments and led by the principles of the baroque period – opulence, exuberance, dissonance, and ornate grandeur
