About the Show

Vivaldi, Venice and violins: all three are celebrated in Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery. “All. silent now, the magic spell is told, All silent now, our mystery tale unfolds…”

This is the story of Katarina, a young violinist who is sent to study music at the great Pietà orphanage in seventeenth century Venice. There, she comes under the tutelage of the famous music director and composer Antonio Vivaldi and, aided by the colorful gondolier Giovanni, searches the thrilling but mysterious atmosphere of Carnival and the Island of the Dead 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. A touching climactic scene unites Katarina
with her Grandfather and together they take Vivaldi’s music – “its spirit and soul” – out into the world.

The original audio recording of Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery claims dozens of top music,
educational, and parenting awards.
