About

Composed at the very beginning of the 17th century and premiered in Mantova in 1607, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo is one of the very first operas in history—and the earliest still performed today. Eminent early music specialist Rinaldo Alessandrini conducts the masterpiece here with some of his favorite collaborators—all tinged by the wonderfully idiosyncratic stylings of avant-garde master Robert Wilson!
