Prophetess, healer, poet, composer: Hildegard von Bingen is one of the most intriguing women in history. Her oeuvre is mainly liturgical. The exception is Ordo virtutum, a liturgical drama intended to educate, or a ‘morality play’.
The plot: the age-old struggle between good and evil, which Hildegard depicts as being fought out between the Virtues and the Devil. The women of the Tiburtina Ensemble from the Czech Republic bring the spectacle to life in a fitting homage to a legendary female artist.
