This is the story of Katarina, a young violinist who is sent to study music at the great Pieta orphanage in seventeenth century Venice with famous music director and composer Antonio Vivaldi. Aided by the colorful gondolier Giovanni, Katarina embarks on a thrilling but mysterious journey searching for clues to her past and a vanishing Stradivarius violin. Along the way, she comes to understand Vivaldi, his music and his reasons for staying at the orphanage despite his international fame. Music Director and Conductor, Daniel Hege, guides our journey as we dive into the “spirit and soul” of Vivaldi’s brilliant music.
