Furies and Erinyes are deities of vengeance and punishment in Greek and Roman mythology. These avengers were born from the earth and blood. They had a dramatic appearance: hair covered with snakes, wings, and black robes. They punished wrongdoers – those who offended the gods or society, or who gave false oaths by lying.

In Baroque music, these avengers are often invoked in laments expressing cruel fate or the suffering caused by unrequited love. The songs frequently seek either vengeance or justice.

This concert program examines the avengers through a modern intersectional feminist lens. The program connects the ancient avengers to the lamentations of the Baroque era and sees them as defenders of justice against perpetrators of violence; against those who have perpetrated violence against women and representatives of marginalized groups.

Isabella Shaw is Aktia's Young singer of the year.
