The 2020 WFMT Radio Network Opera Series continues with a production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, performed by The Royal Danish Opera. Regarded as one of the first operas, the late-renaissance L’Orfeo tells the story of Orpheus as he goes down to the underworld in search of his beloved Eurydice.
In this performance, Danish conductor and baroque expert Lars Ulrik Mortensen teams up with Concerto Copenhagen to guarantee a sparklingly vivid and close-up interpretation of Monteverdi’s unique and immortal music.
This opera is brought to you through the European Broadcasting Union, by way of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.
This program is a part of the WFMT Radio Network Opera Series, a series designed to complement the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts to fill out the year with great Opera content. The series begins in May and lasts until November.
