Singers, Instrumentalists and dancers from Cape Town Opera, Camerata Tinta Barocca and Cape Town City Ballet provide an emotional and artistic response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The text reflects on the suffering of Mary at the Crucifixion, and Pergolesi’s compact setting provides the jumping-off point for our reflection on grief caused by this pandemic, and social and spatial alienation arriving in its wake.
