Glimpse the origins of opera with conductor John Eliot Gardiner, who brings his “relentless intelligence and audacity” (Guardian, U.K.) to what is widely considered the first great work in the opera repertoire. Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo places the tragic Greek lovers Orpheus and Eurydice in an entirely new sound world, taking the dramatic arc of their myth to new heights of emotion.

 

This performance is also a part of the White Light Festival.
