Notes and Editorial Reviews

Intense and refined performances by an inspired cast, led by a profound and commanding John Mark Ainsley as the legendary tragic musician, are sustained with fluent ease and obvious affection by the ensemble under Stephen Stubbs.

The beautifully styled, evocative stage production, rich with Pierre Audi’s trademark symbolism, accentuates the solemn serenity of Monteverdi’s most famous work to create a moving and timeless experience.
