A free streaming broadcast of our June 2015 production of Monteverdi’s Orfeo, starting tenor Aaron Sheehan in the title role.
Widely regarded as the first great opera, Claudio Monteverdi’s Orfeo features one of opera’s most adored stories, in which the heroic Orfeo endures the tragic death of his beloved Euridice, and travels to the underworld to plead for her return. Breathtaking in its beauty and variety, this masterpiece defined an art form still in its infancy, with rich instrumental colors, dramatic word painting, and a virtuosic opulence of tone and texture.
