Pacific MusicWorks is thrilled to bring this spectacular performance to Seattle as part of a 7-City CD release tour. PMW Artistic Director Stephen Stubbs, who is also Artistic Co-Director of the Boston Early Music Festival, is joined by his colleagues Amanda Forsythe, Emoke Baráth, Colin Balzer, and Christian Immler with a colorful continuo team to present this emotionally-charged and powerful program.
Pacific MusicWorks and Early Music Underground are joining forces to present this series of fun, informal concerts all under the artistic leadership of Henry Lebedinsky at great venues including Seattle's Naked City Brewery, Bellevue's Resonance at SOMA Towers, and more. Enjoy great food, drink, and company, along with adventurous programming and the signature Underground multimedia experience. It's perfect for first-time concertgoers and seasoned fans alike — and a great way to introduce friends to the music you love.
The first unqualified operatic masterpiece — full of dramatic word painting, narrative urgency, rich orchestration, and exquisite writing for vocal ensemble. L'Orfeo feels as fresh and full of relevance as it must have at its premiere in 1607. Monteverdi specialist and GRAMMY® winner Stephen Stubbs leads Pacific MusicWorks and the Dark Horse Consort in a concert version featuring Colin Balzer in the title role.
