It was 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.
