About the Performance
The Story of Orpheus
Orpheus is one of the most tragic characters in history. When his love tragically dies on their wedding night, he embarks on an epic journey to rescue her from the gates of the underworld. The Boston Early Music Festival Chamber Ensemble will unfold this heart-wrenching tale with music drawn from Baroque opera pastiche, performed by Parisian superstar Philippe Jaroussky and American soprano Amanda Forsythe. Don’t miss your chance to be swept away by this love story for the ages.
Works by Sartorio, Monteverdi, Rossi, and more.
