Monteverdi Madrigals of War and Love
With spell-binding intimacy, Father of Opera and Archetypal Troubadour — Claudio Monteverdi — spins epic tales of conquered hearts and lovelorn battlefields. In this staged production, iconic madrigals like Lamento della Ninfa and Tancredi e Clorinda weave together with lesser-known gems to create an Ariadne’s Thread of breath-taking music and compelling drama that traces a path to the core of what it is to love, fight, lose and overcome.
