Favola in musica in one prologue and five acts
Dramatic power and lively orchestration mark l'Orfeo, one of the earliest works recognized as an opera, based on the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus who attempts to rescue his dead lover Eurydice from Hades, the Underworld. With this opera Monteverdi created an entirely new style of music, the dramma per musica, or musical drama.
World renowned conductor William Christie leads Les arts florissants in this Teatro Real of Madrid production, set by Pier luigi Pizzi in the Mantua ducal palace where the opera was first staged.
