Echoes of Orpheus



We’d like to welcome you to Echoes of Orpheus, a new series of concerts in addition to our regular concert series that will happen throughout the next year. Echoes of Orpheus is designed to entice you as we build up to the Summer 2022 production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo. We will introduce you to the opera, its characters, our artists and creative team, and Monteverdi’s colorful and evocative soundworld. This is music at the intersection of renaissance and baroque style, and the formation of an entirely new art form, a story in music, or opera. Stay tuned on our website and on our social media for more information!
