Renaissance Concert

A Renaissance Concert with Romeo & Julia Kören is a playful dramatic concert performed by the ensemble wearing beautiful renaissance costumes. A feast for both eye and ear, characteristic of Romeo & Julia Kören.

Romeo & Julia Kören has a repertoire of some 150 madrigals from the English, French, Italian and Spanish Renaissance. Songs about love, melancholy, lust, and zest for life.

The songs are performed accompanied by lute and percussions, sometimes contra bass and guittarr , depending on the event.

With our singing and acting we make any space into a theatre stage and create a magical world for our audience to take part in and share with them our joy and love for this music.

We tailor the concerts to make the most out of each specific venue, be it a castle, church, concert hall, private home, garden, town square, or any other physical space, a concept that we are know for and cherish.

This cast is so adept in their ability to tell a story through movement, both dramatic as well as comical, that you found yourself engrossed in characters as they made their way through a series of romantic encounters that consisted of every imaginable combination. Finding love has never been so much fun. /…/ Bravo to the entire cast and special applause to Director Benoit Malmberg/…/.

What the Swedish visitors offer can’t be described as a mere concert. It’s an artistic smorgasbord full of vaudevillian pratfalls that rub shoulders with flirtatious interplay, acrobatic feats, histrionic hijinks and singing of modest appeal.
/…/bits of whimsy that are either stretched (a sequence involving music paper and a dress; don ’t ask) or funny along Marx-Brothers-Meet-Monty-Python lines.  
Donald Rosenberg, cleveland.com

As they showed in two productions, experimental theater is an ingenious way to bring largely forgotten music back to life.
/…/ The updating of some of the pieces – a Swingle Singers version of Farmer’s “Fair Phyllis,” jazzed up with snare brushes played on paper, or Josquin’s “El grillo” morphed into a drum circle – further underscored the goal of these performances, to revive this old music not as we think it may have been but as part of something new.
Charles T. Downey, The Washington Post

This Swedish group…a small group of traveling gems from a resident group of dozens in their home country…excelled in combining delightfully blended singing with most humorous interplaying to keep up a steady rumbling of audience laughter
