Semi-staging by Thomas Guthrie

I Fagiolini’s celebrated project The Full Monteverdi, a worldwide success, premiered in Cheltenham in 2004. In the 450th anniversary year of the great composer’s birth, we welcome them back with a semi-staged performance of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, acknowledged as the first great opera. Written in 1607, Monteverdi’s use of orchestral colour and expert vocal writing animates the story of Orpheus’ search for his love in the underworld.

Supported by Diana Woolley
