Show Full Description
To mark Claudio Monteverdi’s 450th birthday, John Eliot Gardiner and his exceptional period-instrument ensemble and choir summon the origins of an art form that began over four centuries ago, illuminating the touching humanity of Monteverdi’s surviving operas in three semi-staged performances over a single week.

 

In Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo, a grieving Orpheus descends to the underworld to bring his dead bride, Eurydice, back to life. Conductor John Eliot Gardiner and his choir and orchestra resurrect this first great work in the opera repertoire, which places the tragic Greek myth in a magical soundscape that plumbs the depths of human longing.

 

This performance is also a part of Great Performers.
