EdPreview: Caravaggio: Between the Darkness

Rome, 1600, a city pulsating with artists, writers and powerful religious leaders. Caravaggio kills a love rival. Forced to flee, Caravaggio secures a commission from his patron, Cardinal Del Monte, on the isolated Christian outpost of Malta. After painting the portrait of the grand master of the Knights of St. John, he learns this powerful man has one desire – to purify Caravaggio’s wretched soul. Caravaggio escapes torture, finding refuge with his artistic nemesis, Annibale Carracci. He waits, longing for the pardon that must surely come… This new writing debut focuses on storytelling, movement and music.
