Leading Berlin-based early music ensemble, the Lautten Compagney, joins forces with formidable countertenor Lawrence Zazzo and mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux to journey into the often-confusing world of gender identity. Together, they turn all masculine clich├ęs and preconceived notions of 18th century opera and its legendary castrati on their heads. "Gender Stories" is an instrumental and vocal feast for all the senses!
