Hildegard of Bingen and the Living Light is a lively portrayal of the 12th century German Abbess Hildegard of Bingen.
This excerpt is from the hour long video adaptation of the stage presentation created and performed by the internationally recognized mezzo-soprano Linn Maxwell. The video tells the story of Hildegard and her mystic visions which ultimately led her to leave a profound mark on the history of the Catholic Church.
Linn was looking to translate her one woman show to video in a fashion that went beyond just documenting her performance. Under the guidance of director Kerry Rasikas , the project presents the stage performance and blends live action imagery to make for an engaging telling of the life of this remarkable 12th century religious figure.
