The Imperfect Pearl is a Baroque musical drama, which tells the re-imagined life story of obscure Italian composer Domenico Zipoli, who left his growing success in Rome in 1717 to face an uncertain and dangerous sea journey to South America, and a precarious future in the Jesuit Missions of the South American jungle, modern day Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina. For more than 200 years thereafter, his life was shrouded in mystery, until in 1972 5,000 pieces of his music were discovered in a Bolivian Church toilet.
Hear of his fascinating life accompanied by beautiful music from Italy and South America.
