Vivaldi, Venice and violins – the three are celebrated in Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, a compelling mystery about an orphan girl in the early 1700s who is in search of her roots.

Audiences will enjoy more than twenty-five excerpts from Vivaldi's most popular and important works, including The Four Seasons, the Violin Concerto in A minor, and the Guitar Concerto.
