As one of the earliest operas, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo is considered a milestone in the history of music, the pioneering skill of its composer in expressing human emotions in music giving it a timeless resonance that has held a fascination for audiences for over 600 years. This excellent Opéra Comique production, coproduced with Opéra Royal, Château de Versailles Spectacles, and Opéra Grand Avignon, has been expertly filmed and recorded by director François Roussillon and Radio France.
The production was critically lauded: ‘Refined and colourful both scenically and musically… Greatly familiar with Monteverdi and L'Orfeo, which he has conducted several times in a stage version as a concertante, Jordi Savall at the head of his orchestra Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya restores the work with great probity, nevertheless showing more rigor than flame. Its direction is done precisely in the service of the dramatic expression giving account, without excess of prettiness.’ (sceneweb.fr)
