Monteverdi Vespers  

Saturday 14 October
Pamoja Hall    7.30pm
Tickets  £15, (concessions £7.50 U18s)   Book tickets

Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 have stood the test of time, surviving 400 years, being rediscovered in the 20th century and remaining popular with audiences today. Monteverdi was a singer, viol player and court composer, publishing books of madrigals and producing one of the first ever operas, L'Orfeo. The Vespers was his first sacred work in nearly 30 years and is a large, complex and groundbreaking piece noted for its brilliance and power.
