Monteverdi’s revolutionary L’Orfeo is widely regarded as opera’s first great masterpiece. This strikingly beautiful and original staging features masters of the Renaissance, I Fagiolini and rising star Matthew Long in the title role.
In this relaxed performance, Thomas Guthrie introduces the puppets and singers in a relaxed, shortened performance that will give you a flavour of Monteverdi’s opera. The performance will have a short break in the middle and is open to everyone, but is especially aimed at young children, individuals with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities.
