Monteverdi: L'Orfeo

2005 NR

Jean-Claude Malgoire conducts the La Grande Ecurie et la Chambre du Roy in this 2004 performance of Claudio Monteverdi's opera "L'Orfeo," starring Kobie van Rensburg, Cyrille Gerstenhaber, Philippe Jaroussky, Delphine Gillot and Bernard Déletré. Composed by Monteverdi in 1607 and based on Greek mythology, "L'Orfeo" recounts the tale of the heartbroken Orfeo, who braves the underworld of Hades to reclaim his beloved Euridice from death.
