During his celebrated career as a composer, Claudio Monteverdi ascended to unparallelled heights of accomplishment and renown. Our season finale reveals some of the “muses” that inspired works from Monteverdi’s years in Mantua and Venice, with a special focus on his later books of madrigals. This performance will harmonize staging by director Guillaume Bernardi with the voices and instruments of the Consort, creating an experience overflowing with ethereal beauty, tragedy, depth and colour.
