Venice Baroque Orchestra

The myth of Orpheus

Description Program Artists

The myth of Orpheus runs as a common thread through this year’s Autumn Festival. It is something akin to the DNA of each opera, since the theme is the power of music itself. Today we present three Baroque masterpieces that center on this antihero. The program is the brainchild of Andrea Marcon, an Italian Baroque specialist and frequent guest at the Festival Hall who is renowned for his innovative concert planning.
