Cappella Mediterranea & Leonardo García Alarcón

Monteverdi’s Orfeo

expected end time 22.45

Monteverdi’s iconic opera articulates Orpheus’ attempts to soothe the keepers of Hades with his voice and his lyre. He is allowed to release his beloved Eurydice from the realm of the dead, on the one condition that he does not turn around to look at her. Leonardo García Alarcón and his Cappella Mediterranea are the fitting performers for this story about life and death, longing and recollection.
