Summary:
First seen at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. This is doubtless because it offers a total symbiosis of music, text and movement - described by the critic of the Daily Telegraph of London as being as close to the perfect dance opera as I have ever seen.
