From April to October 2017, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, an international cast of soloists and members of the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists, are celebrating Monteverdi's 450th anniversary by performing his three surviving operas in concert halls across Europe and the US. The tour so far has received phenomenal receptions from both audiences and critics with many 5-star reviews and has been seen in Bristol, Aix-en-Provence, Barcelona and Venice. The tour continues over the next 4 months and visits festivals and concert venues in Salzburg, Edinburgh, Luzern, Berlin, Chicago and New York, for the full list of dates please click here. There is also a tour brochure which can be view online here.

From 23 June, Culturebox will stream the complete Monteverdi trilogy; L'Orfeo, Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria and L'incoronazione di Poppea, free and on-demand. The recordings are from our hugely successful recent appearances at Teatro La Fenice, where the three operas were performed back-to-back during a week long residency from 16-21 June.

As with all our work these performances are only possible thanks to our loyal supporters and benefactors - we are a registered charity and receive no public subsidy.
