If you’ve seen WAG’s January “Passion for Living” issue, then you know we were all over The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit “Bartholomeus Spranger: Splendor and Eroticism in Imperial Prague,” on view through Feb. 1. There’s nothing we like more than reveling in flesh (in the most artistic way, of course). Apparently, so did rakish Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II, who was Spranger’s VIP (very important patron). On Jan. 29, The Met will present “Turning Music Into Gold,” in which Ensemble Caprice evokes Imperial Prague and the court of Rudolf II in pieces by early music composers performed on period instruments.
The concert takes place at 7 p.m. in The Met’s Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium. Tickets start at $65. Bring the Kids for $1 tickets are available for this performance.
