Overview

L' Orfeo (Teatro Real de Madrid)

The Teatro Real de Madrid mounted this lavish 2008 production of Claudio Monteverdi's 1607 L'Orfeo. Widely regarded as one of the earliest operas in history, it draws from the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus, and dramatizes his quest to rescue his beloved, Eurydice, from the underworld. This particular version stars Dietrich Henschel as Orfeo and Maria Grazia Schiavo in a triple role as Euridice, La Musica and Proserpina, while Les Arts Florissants, under the baton of William Christie, provides musical accompaniment.
