Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 8 October 2017
Coming up on Vox Nostra. - February 24th
One of the most famous early operas had its premiere on this day in 1607: Claudio Monteverdi's 'Orfeo' was first performed in Mantua 412 years ago today.
We'll explore what made this opera so revolutionary, and it will give us a chance to indulge in plenty of the composer's other msuic on this Sunday morning's programme. We'll also take a closer look at all of the operas that were inspired by the story of these two tragic lovers and their otherworld journeys, including a close look at Irish National Opera's current production of Gluck's 'Orfeo et Euridice'.
