Constantinople and guest soprano Suzie LeBlanc reinvent the cantatas of 17th-century singer and composer Barbara Strozzi, a worthy heiress of Monteverdi, who created a secular vocal repertoire that intoxicates the senses. Metamorfosi Musicali also features instrumental works of Johannes Kapsberger, whose spontaneous phrasing and sharp contrasts provide fertile ground for Constantinople’s improvisations.

Taking its name from the ancient city illuminating East and West, Constantinople was conceived as a forum for creation, encounters, and cross-fertilization with a focus on geographical, historical, and personal journeys. Over the past decade the ensemble has developed more than 35 new works and performed in nearly 120 cities across 22 countries.
