Claudio Monteverdi: L’ Orfeo

MMA exterior

Overview

WITH A TWIST | OPERA – MUSICAL THEATRE

Occasioned by the anniversary for the 450 years after Monteverdi’s birth, Thanos Papakonstantinou and Markellos Chryssicos present L’ Orfeo – an emblematic play, often regarded as the first opera in the history of music. The Latinitas Nostra Baroque ensemble alongside composer and musicologist Panos Iliopoulos suggest a new acoustic interpretation of the original material and set to music the original epilogue (1607) of the opera, which exists only in text form in Alessandro Striggio’s libretto.
