Cleveland, OH – Burning River Baroque is thrilled to announce the upcoming performance for their program “Destructive Desires.”

Known for their practice of programming concerts around historical themes of social change and tying them to current issues, co-directors and performers of the classical ensemble, Paula Maust and Malina Rauschenfels, have set their sights on one of the leading stories in the news today: the rise of the #MeToo movement.

The advent of the movement and the resulting conversation about consent gives everyone the opportunity to both explore new channels of communication and redefine the boundaries of their expectations and assumptions in all forms of relationships.

“The profound worldwide impact of the #MeToo campaign was a striking beginning to what will hopefully be a continued dialogue about the abuse of power and consent in all types of relationships,” Maust said.

Pairing stories and themes from biblical passages and seminal Greek stories with a collection of 17th and 18th-century composers such as Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre and François Couperin, the pair intend to demonstrate various forms of
power imbalance and lack of consent in stories old enough to be in our collective unconscious.

“We see change as starting with the acknowledgment of the ludicrous nature of these timeless stories, which is what our program aims to do,” Rauschenfels said.

The Cleveland-based ensemble has been praised by numerous critics, such as Daniel Hathaway of Cleveland Classical and Liane Curtis of the Boston Music Intelligencer, for delivering fiery and passionate performances, fitting descriptions considering their source of inspiration for their ensemble’s name was the Cuyahoga River fires.

Ms. Maust and Ms. Rauschenfels are set to perform in Cleveland Heights, Ohio Friday, August 17th, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. Seating is extremely limited.

To reserve seats, email with the number of seats needed. Address for the venue is given upon confirmation.

Admission is a suggested donation of $20 and your choice of wine to share during the meet-and-greet portion of the evening.
