2017 marked the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi - one of the founders of opera and hailed in his day as 'the creator of modern music'. Monteverdi transformed vocal music beyond Renaissance polyphony into an entirely new genre that expressed powerful feelings and emotions within a gripping narrative. This set brings together Monteverdi's three surviving operas: the splendorous L'Orfeo and, from later in his life, Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria and L'incoronazione di Poppea with their visceral passions and dramatic dilemmas, all elements that have animated the history of opera for centuries. John Eliot Gardiner's acclaimed Monteverdi 450 series of semi-staged performances produced in Venice's historical Teatro La Fenice is a living confirmation that Monteverdi 'will be sighed for in later ages, for his compositions will surely outlive the ravages of time.'
