Programmes

Kokla Kokabula

New creation in 2018 – in collaboration with Thierry Pécou & the Ensemble Variances. An incantation based on christian and pagan exorcisms from medieval Croatia.

Nexus Winchester

This programme roots its inspiration in Winchester Troper and its musical richness to relate this very special day where the canons of Winchester Cathedral were expelled by the bishop Aethelwold, and replaced by monks from Abingdon.

La Belle Époque… médiévale

Dialogos invites you for a walk in the elegant atmosphere of Parisian salons and café-concerts from the beginning of the 20th century, among poets, musicians, storytellers and raconteurs, inspired by the medieval and ancient worlds.

Dalmatica

Dalmatica unites four women’s voices of Dialogos with six traditional cantors from Croatia. Together, they explore the richness of Dalmatian liturgical traditions, at the boundaries of Roman Catholic and Byzantine influences

Swithun!

Through the voice of Wulfstan the Cantor, we follow the path of a penitent man haunted by his visionary and terrifying dreams, trying to escape from three raging Furies, and finally finding salvation from Swithun, saint of all miracles. An initiatory story, where dreams and fantasies build a liberating and exhilarating musical path.

Heretical Angels

In this programme Dialogos meets traditional cantors, among  which one of today’s youngest epic singers in Herzegovina. Chants, poignant and strong, intertwine in a story verging on musical  theatre which invites the public to follow pagan and Christian rites  surrounding birth and death in this country situated in the  gateway to the East.

Barlaam and Josaphat

This concert programme is built on the legend of Prince Josaphat and his master Barlaam, whose story appears as a christianized version of the life of Buddha. A strong experience in which different languages and musical cultures meet in a surprising soundscape, like an audible Tower of Babel of medieval Europe

Judith

This staged musical drama is based on the famous biblical story  of Judith in a version from Croatian Renaissance poet Marko Marulic. A beautiful and dangerous enchantress infiltrates the palace of the Assyrian enemy, seduces the powerful general Holofernes and beheads him

A Voyage for Two Kindred Voices

Dialogos presents its new a cappella program which explores the intimate and powerful world of medieval liturgical music. As we open the door to musical worlds from a thousand years ago
