Orpheus sings his way to the underworld in pursuit of his wife Euridice, overcoming all obstacles by the power of his voice. He finds her but loses her again. Orfeo encapsulates the human condition through Monteverdi’s genius.

This enthralling music gives words their expression, allowing them to take flight, all the while celebrating the unique talents of each performer. Director, John Caird, makes his Garsington Opera debut, with Ed Lyon (The Turn of the Screw, 2019) in the title role, and Laurence Cummings returns to conduct.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
