Songs, scenes and madrigals by Claudio Monteverdi and others.
“...it will be very special, for all the protagonists will speak in music; it is said on all sides that it will be a great sucess. No doubt I shall be driven to attend out of sheer curiosity, unless I am prevented from getting in by the lack of space...” (Carlo Magno writing before the première of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, 1607).
