Teatro Real, Madrid, May 2008

This is the first recording in the complete Monteverdi cycle with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants, made possible by a three-year collaboration between Dynamic and Teatro Real.

Luigi Pizzi’s attractive and original staging is enhanced by the rich colour of 17th century costumes. The musicians - and Christie himself - also perform in costume, with the conductor clad in a flowing red cloak and white ruffed collar.

The DVD also features interviews with Christie, Pizzi and the Opera’s two protagonists.

“Les Arts Florissants and William Christie have an individualised spontaneity yet breathe as one.’ The Independent
