La morte d’Orfeo Stefano Landi (1587-1639)

Back to the beginning

Duration 2:00

By Stefano Landi

Language Italian

Surtitles Dutch and English

With this staging of La morte d’Orfeo, Pierre Audi is returning - in his last production as director of DNO - to the beginnings of his career and to those of the opera genre.

In short

In this opera, the story of Orpheus is continued where Monteverdi left off. The tragi-comic pastorale La morte d’Orfeo by Stefano Landi (1590-1639) is a far less well-known work on the Orpheus theme, but gives a deeper insight into the real meaning of the Orphean myth.
