    Monteverdi's l'Orfeo

    Starting this week Bernard Clarke will explore recordings by the Belgian conductor René Jacobs, renowned for his performances of Baroque and early Classical opera.

    Tonight we’ll hear his superlative recording of L’Orfeo, Monteverdi’s telling of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. First performed in 1607, Bernard examines the recent superlative recording by Jacobs with the Concerto Vocale, and Laurence Dale singing the title role.

    Saturday 29th August
    Bernard Clarke brings us to the Verona Arena for a performance of Mozart’s much loved Don Giovanni. Carlos Alvarez plays Don Giovanni, Irina Lungu (pictured) is Donna Anna, Saimir Pirgu is Don Ottavio, and they are joined by Rafal Siwek, Maria Jose Siri, Alex Esposito, Christian Senn and Natalia Roman. The Verona Arena Chorus and Orchestra is conducted by Stefano Montanari.

    Saturday 5th September
    Tonight Bernard Clarke introduces Delibes’ much loved Opera Lakme in a new co-production by Lausanne Opera and Opera Comique.
