This full concert broadcast comes from our 2017 award-winning Monteverdi Trilogy tour, when the Monteverdi ensembles and John Eliot Gardiner celebrated the composer’s 450th anniversary with performances of his three surviving operas. This project saw the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists, and an exemplary cast of world-class singers showcase concert-stagings of Monteverdi’s Orfeo, Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria and L’incoronazione di Poppea, at sixteen venues across the world.
