Demand for the new medium of opera in Monteverdi's Italy was so insatiable that the pasticcio was created to recycle favourite arias and scenes, weaving operatic chunks by different composers into new plot-lines. The opera-going public was delighted to hear their favourite arias in one performance of a ‘new' dramatic work.

Consumed by a Kiss reconstructs the practice. It brings together scenes from Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea and Cavalli's La Didone with arias by Rossi and Caccini, punctuated by instrumental pieces of the period in a collage of deliciously sensuous music.

Mark Tucker and Julia Gooding are fine and expressive interpreters of baroque opera.

“This English soprano's blend of passion, subtlety, technical control and perfect diction blew your socks off!”  (Martin Adams, Irish Times)

 “Mark Tucker's Orfeo struck form with a glowing and impassioned account of the great melismatic aria.” (Telegraph)

“His voice contains a formidable range of colours…his timbre has rare and rich resonance.” (Opera)

This group of instrumentalists also has unsurpassed credentials in this repertoire.
