Director Silvia Costa and her team present the cruel story of a great love in L’Orfeo: cruel, because Orpheus cannot get over the death of his beloved, because he longs and yearns for her and loses himself in feedback-loops of loss. In often surreal images, Costa, whose productions and installations are celebrated across Europe, shows the world of cold turkey withdrawal: an enigmatic round-dance of dreams and hallucinations, of colours and symbols. Monteverdi’s sensual early work will be conducted by Baroque-specialist David Bates, who previously brought Trionfo. Vier letzte Nächte to splendid life in Hanover.
