ONLINE CONCERT – Early Music at the Royal Castle / Monteverdi



Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Polish Royal Opera kindly invites you to another retransmission on our YouTube channel. This time we would like to bring back an event from the cycle Early Music at the Royal Castle, held on 24 November 2018. The programme consists of two works by the Italian master of dramatic music – Claudio Monteverdi.

ONLINE CONCERT – EARLY MUSIC AT THE ROYAL CASTLE / MONTEVERDI will be made available on the YouTube channel of the Polish Royal Opera on Wednesday, 10 June at 19.00.

During the first part of the concert you will hear Ballo delle ingrate (1608) with text by Ottavio Rinuccini, defined as an ‘opera-ballet’. Next, the wonderful Soloists together with the Period Instruments Ensemble Capella Regia Polona under the baton of Krzysztof Garstka will perform the famous Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda (1624) with text by Torquato Tasso. Monteverdi prefaced this work with a long foreword, in which he explains his aesthetic premises, thus allowing us a deeper insight into the structure of the work and the author’s creative process.

We hope you’ll enjoy the concert!
