AN OTTOMAN FEAST

AN EVENING OF EXOTIC FOOD AND MUSIC AT MONA

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

Australia’s most innovative and exciting early music ensemble, Latitude 37, returns to Hobart Baroque to star in a unique collaboration with MONA.

This adventurous group of musicians’ tireless search for rare and hitherto unperformed compositions led them to the Ottoman Empire and to a collection of exotic Turkish classical compositions from the 17th Century.

While Europeans were enjoying Bach and Handel, the Ottoman Turks and their neighbours were listening to their own baroque music.

For this exceptional performance, Latitude 37 is joined by a further three talented players specialising in the music and individual sound of such ancient instruments as the oud, a lute-like instrument from northern Africa and southwest Asia, and the kanun, another ancient traditional instrument related to the zither.

Wines and exotic Turkish treats created by MONA’s renowned team of chefs are included in the ticket price.

And if you’d like to imagine that the Derwent is the Bosphorous, you may choose to travel to and from MONA by boat. This trip is also included in the ticket price.

Numbers for this special one-off event are strictly limited to just 200 guests so PLEASE BOOK EARLY for what will surely be one of the many highlights of Hobart Baroque 2014.
