Monteverdi Orfeo (Act V)

Fame at last! Orfeo, Monteverdi’s first opera brought him recognition through Italy and was a turning point in music drama. Acclaimed across Europe, Paul Agnew makes a rare London appearance to explore the Baroque story-telling tradition which Monteverdi began, including a selective performance of Monteverdi’s timeless story of love and loss.
