2002 NR

Adrian Noble of the Royal Shakespeare Company directs this minimalist adaptation of Claudio Monteverdi's 1641 opera, performed in 2002 at the Aix-en-Provence festival in France under the artistic direction of William Christie. The plot chronicles the experiences of a young Ulysses (tenor Kresimir Spicer) as he returns home after fighting in the Trojan War, only to find that his wife (mezzo-soprano Marijana Mijanovic) has attracted many suitors.
