Longborough Festival Opera: L’Orfeo
July 11 | 5:00 pm – July 18 | 8:30 pm
La Serenissima will be performing for Longborough Festival Opera’s production of ‘L’Orfeo.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles, Monteverdi’s poignant and revolutionary take on the Orpheus legend is often considered the first operatic masterpiece.
L’Orfeo will be performed on period instruments by Venetian Baroque specialists La Serenissima, conducted by Robert Howarth (The Return of Ulysses ,2021) and directed by Olivia Fuchs, returning following our acclaimed Cunning Little Vixen in 2021.
