Peak Performances will present ARTEK’s production of “I’ll Never See the Stars Again” on October 20 at 8pm, which turns early music composer Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries into an emotional mosaic of compelling, innovative theater through its postmodern staging by director Ggwendolyn Toth. “I’ll Never See the Stars Again” will be performed at the Alexander Kasser Theater on the Montclair State University campus.

Suggesting a gaggle of Italian refugees who pause for a series of vignettes on life, love and human relationships, “I’ll Never See the Stars Again” takes place in 12 different dramatic scenes. The cast is comprised of six singers including soprano Sarah Chalfy and countertenor Ryland Angel, plus five instrumentalists performing on the harpsichord, theorbo, lute, gamba and violin.
