A Renaissance of Monteverdi

A RENAISSANCE OF MONTEVERDI explains the cultural, political, and historical background to a courtly madrigal by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643). Scenes of rehearsal and preparation lead to a fully staged production of a Ballo from the Madrigals of Love and War, performed by tenor Nigel Rogers, harpsichordist Colin Tilney, dancer Victoria Leigh, and the Oklahoma Collegium Musicum, directed by Eugene Enrico. The program features scholars James Yoch, Susan Caldwell, and Margaret Flansberg.

Produced by Eugene Enrico and William Crane.
