Anima Eterna Brugge — Monteverdi’s greatest hits


  • 20.00 Concertzaal
  • 22.20 Expected end time
  • 19.15 Introduction by Ignace Bossuyt


Love, jealousy and contrition become palpable in music

Monteverdi, interpreted by two of today’s most versatile and expressive tenors and characterful Norwegian mezzo Marianne Beate Kielland: a veritable celebration! 40 years after his legendary Orfeo - a brilliant synthesis of old and new - Jos van Immerseel selects favourites from music pioneer Claudio Monteverdi’s most dramatic works. For some a revelation, for others a welcome rediscovery.
