Kick-off for the Monteverdi trilogy in the Vienna State Opera

After more than half a year we are finally celebrating another premiere in front of an audience with no more suitable composer like Monteverdi, the father of opera! A wonderful ensemble of dancers and singers, the instrumentalists of the Concentus Musicus Wien under the baton of Pablo Heras-Casado and the leading team around Jan Lauwers.
Further dates: May 28, 31 and June 3, 8



For those who cannot be there “L’incoronazione di Poppea” will be broadcast on Deutschlandradio Kultur on June 5th from 7.05 p.m.
You can listen to the recording here for seven days.
