Monteverdi's L'Orfeo (opera in concert)

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists are undisputed masters of Baroque repertoire, particularly the dramatic and piercingly beautiful music of 17th-century composer Monteverdi. Gardiner and his ensemble perform Monteverdi’s groundbreaking opera L’Orfeo, a masterpiece that recounts the tale of the legendary musician Orpheus’s journey to Hades to reclaim his beloved Eurydice. Five-hundred years after its premiere, Monteverdi’s opera still has the power to move audiences.
