Event description
Music by Claudio Monteverdi | Libretto by Alessandro Striggio English Translation by Danny Brylow and Joseph Krohlow

About this event

In 1607, Claudio Monteverdi, then working for the Duke of Mantua, presented the first truly great surviving opera, “L’Orfeo.” 415 years later, Milwaukee Opera Theatre and Aperi Animam are joining forces to share an original English translation of this masterwork. Spoiler alert: This one has a happy ending.
