An eyewitness to turbulent 17th-century Italy

On 24 February, 1607, in the Ducal Palace in Mantua, the premiere took place of what was probably the very first opera: Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. This documentary - produced for cultural TV channel Arte - follows the composer of this innovation’s long journey, via documents, locations and especially music. In dialogue with present-day performers, it paints a portrait that reads like a novel. In his 76 years of life, Monteverdi got to know, among others, Veronesi and Galileo, and got to read Cervantes’ first editions.
