    L’Orfeo (Paul Agnew) 104'  - 2017  - CLC Productions

    Opera in 5 acts composed by Claudio Monteverdi
    Recorded at the Théâtre de Caen

    Paul Agnew – here both conductor and stage director – presents his intimate and ‘sacred’ version of Monteverdi’s first opera. In a fine collective spirit, the singers and instrumentalists of Les Arts Florissants participate in the drama on equal terms, mingling in a single set that gives increased prominence to the (masterly) lighting and to the protagonists (overwhelmingly moving in their restrained movements and expressions): we are transported to the very heart of Monteverdi’s masterpiece, as if we had fallen into a painting by Nicolas Poussin, caught up in the mystical adventure of two lovers more mythical than ever.
