L’Orfeo (or La favola d’Orfeo)

by Claudio Monteverdi | libretto by Alessandro Striggio

Directed by Stephanie Havey
Conducted by Christian Capocaccia

See where opera all began! Monteverdi’s setting of the mythical tale of Orpheus and his great love Eurydice, is the first great master piece of theater with music. Orfeo’s quest to bring back Eurydice from the dead begins as a lover’s lament but ends up a spiritual pursuit—a story of passion and courage, and the weakness of the human spirit.
