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.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.
