A Scanian Orfeo

Claudio Monteverdis “Orfeo” from 1604 is usually temporally thought of as the first work of opera. The work has never been performed in its entirety in Skåne. The Lund Baroque Association in collaboration with Höör Baroque plans to perform the opera in concert form in Kristianstad, Höör and Lund in 2018. In order to reinforce the dramatic event and facilitate the audience’s understanding of the work, a director / choreographer will be hired to work on lighting, and in collaboration with professional dancers to develop a choreography that reinforces key scenes.
