Early Music Vancouver- Monteverdi’s Orfeo

Early Music Vancouver- Monteverdi’s Orfeo
Sun October 29 2017 / 3pm
Chan Centre/ Chan Shun Concert Hall

Presented by Early Music Vancouver

Monteverdi’s Orfeo is the first unqualified masterpiece of operatic history. Full of dramatic word painting, narrative urgency, rich orchestration of exotic instruments as well as exquisite writing for vocal ensemble, it feels as fresh and full of relevance as it must have in the early 17th century. Monteverdi specialist and GRAMMY winner Stephen Stubbs leads his own ensemble, Pacific MusicWorks, in a concert version featuring Vancouver’s Colin Balzer in the title role.

‘The man is a genius. Oh, I meant Stubbs. But Monteverdi, too, was no slouch.’ – The Seattle Times
