EUROPA GALANTE // L’Orfeo in the Elbphilharmonie
Europa Galante and Fabio Biondi continue a personal Monteverdi tradition in Hamburg.
In April 2019 they debuted at the Elbphilharmonie with Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria (1641), now L’Orfeo (1607) follows. With the title role, Monteverdi created one of the most demanding vocal parts in the history of early opera, which is ideally cast here with the exceptional tenor Ian Bostridge. The orchestra is collaborating with the world-renowned RIAS Kammerchor for the first time on this occasion.
