The opera I Fioretti in Musica was performed 12 times at La MaMa Experimental Theater in New York City in 2010. It was staged by set designer Gian Marco Lo Forte, director of the theater company Pioneers Go East. The singers are in front of the stage and off to the side, as in 16th-century madrigal comedies. Mezzo-soprano Megan Schubert, singing the part of St. Francis of Assisi, is visible on the far left of the video excerpts below. The other soloists in these excerpts are counter-tenor Patrick Fennig, tenor Charles Matthew Hill and baritones Matthew Knickman and Raymond Bailey.

I Fioretti, Act IV (above).
