Unsung Heroine

The secret life & love of medieval singer-songwriter Beatriz de Dia by Clare Norburn

Troubadour Countess, Beatriz de Dia (1140-1212) was the Amy Winehouse of her day. Instinctively creative, she channelled her dark personal experiences into impassioned song. This half play/half concert blends history and fiction, taking you back to the heady atmosphere of 12th century Provence with plaintive songs and foot-stomping medieval dances.
