Two Monteverdi opera films out now on DVD and Blu-ray

The two films of our landmark 2017 performances of Monteverdi’s operas L’orfeo and Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria are now on sale.

Order your copies now via Presto Music:


Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria

Both pieces were filmed during our award-winning international tour of the Monteverdi Opera Trilogy. Alongside the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists, John Eliot Gardiner assembled an exemplary cast of world-class singers for a concert-staging of Monteverdi’s revolutionary operas.

‘This production of the first great opera ever written is otherworldly and unforgettable, letting Monteverdi’s genius shine through’
★★★★★ The Times

We now look forward to the release of the final film in our Monteverdi Opera Trilogy L’incoronazione di Poppea on Friday 22 July.
