L’Orfeo

featuring

Georg Nigl, Roberta Invernizzi, Sara Mingardo,

A wonderful minimalist interpretation by the American avant-garde stage director Robert Wilson of Claudio Monteverdi’s seminal first opera from 1607, which tells the dramatic story from Ovid’s Metamorphosis of the descent of Orfeo (Georg Nigl) into the underworld to recover his beloved wife Euridice (Roberta Invernizzi). In this 2009 production for La Scala, Wilson based the visual design on paintings by Titian. The opera receives a powerful and inspiring performance by the Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala and Concerto Italiano under the direction of much-admired Italian early music specialist Rinaldo Alessandrini.
