About

Having previously directed much-admired recordings of both 'Orfeo' and 'Poppea' (not forgetting the madrigal books), Claudio Cavina now turns his attention to the enduring Homeric-inspired tale of constancy and virtue first performed in Venice over 350 years ago, Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria.

Conscious of the restrictions inherent in the single surviving score, now kept in Vienna, and that it is likely that Monteverdi was not the only composer involved for the original production, Cavina brings his deep understanding to bear on Monteverdi’s inspiration.

In this latest artistic endeavour, Claudio Cavina is joined by the instrumentalists of La Venexiana and a superb group of singers: Anicio Zorzi Giustiniani as Ulisse; Josè Maria La Monaco as Penelope; Makoto Sakurada and Roberta Mameli have starring roles and Cavina, himself, takes a singing role.

Cast:
- Anizio Zorzi Giustiniani [Ulisse]
- Josè Maria Lo Monaco[ Penelope]
- Roberta Mameli [Minerva]
- Makoto Sakurada [Telemaco, Eurimaco]
- Salvo Vitale [Nettuno]
- Giorgia Milanesi [Giunone]
