Et ego vadam New York City!

Death for Five Voices and Co. has returned to the city that never sleeps- and after a few changes during our international residency, you may not be able to sleep after seeing it.

For those of you who are new to the journey of this show here is a little info about what is going on:

Death for Five Voices is based on an historic event: On October 16, 1590 Prince Carlo Gesualdo entrapped and brutally murdered his wife, Maria D’Avalos, and her lover, Fabrizio Carafa, at the Gesualdo home, the Palazzo San Severo in Naples. At the time, the murders were widely known and documented, but nothing was done to apprehend Carlo who, as an Italian nobleman, and having caught the lovers in flagrante delicto, was within his rights.

This new musical drama explores the complex artistic personage of Carlo Gesualdo, a groundbreaking composer of the late Renaissance, and investigates how his creative internal life and subsequent compositions may have been related to his brutal external actions. Peter Mills’ sophisticated original score, which incorporates musical themes from Gesualdo’s compositions, blends period musical style with contemporary theater storytelling to create a compelling portrait of a troubled artist, living at a moment in history when complex political and religious forces collided and changed our perceptions of the possibility of art.

A cast of seven actor-singers and a chamber ensemble of four musicians bring to life this gripping drama and psychologically thrilling tale of the voices that lived within Carlo Gesualdo.

Take a look at our New York City cast:


Jason Gotay (Paper Mill Playhouse’s A Bronx Tale, Spider-Man, Bring It On!) as Carlo Gesualdo.


Jeff Williams (The Pirate Queen, The Music Man) as Alfonso Gesualdo.


Manna Nichols (Allegiance, Goodspeed’s Guys and Dolls) as Maria D’Avalos.
