Presentation

Opera in five acts with prologue to a booklet by Alessandro Striggio first performed in Mantua in 1607.

In 1607 Claudio Monteverdi created his Orfeo, a musical fable, for the Carnival opening at the Court Theatre of Duke Vincenzo I in Mantua. For the first time in the history of music, real characters were brought to life with poignant human feelings: its extraordinary dramatic power gave birth to modern opera. Tenor Emiliano Gonzalez Toro is one of the great experts in this repertoire, which he has sung on the most illustrious stages. He is currently the most credible heir to the tenor Francesco Rasi, who created the role of Orfeo in Mantua. The Ensemble I Gemelli, which he leads, brings together some of the finest vocal and instrumental virtuosos, all acclaimed specialists in the Italian Seicento. The CD recording that they have just made together could prove to be the great modern reference for this legendary score: this concert will illustrate its magnificence, but live and in public this time!

This programme will be recorded on CD for the Château de Versailles Spectacles label
