To mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, his greatest and most-loved opera L’Orfeo is reimagined for the 21st century. Starring David Greco as Orpheus, with an authentic period orchestra directed by Erin Helyard, this production is another creative collaboration from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions.

Known to his contemporaries as an 'oracolo della musica', Monteverdi was a musical visionary, whose talent for communicating raw emotion ensures the opera’s enduring appeal today. This production explores the work’s creative potential even further, in a modern re-telling of one of the most influential and beloved stories in operatic history.
