About

Monteverdiís operas are rightly considered as the first masterpieces in opera history. Much like DNA, they contain all characteristics of todayís opera, 400 years later.

Elena Kats-Chernin, a successful international composer from Tashkent, used Monteverdiís musical material, even though it barely contains any concrete orchestration details, and has provided a new and idiosyncratic instrumentation. Similar to what Monteverdi did in his time, Kats-Chernin incorporates various styles, from Jazz and Klezmer, to Tango and Ragtime, into her style.

This new creation of Monteverdiís opera uses the traditional orchestral instrumentation, and adds exotic instruments from Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Western Africa.

The strong, comic, enthralling, stark and sensitive images with which Barrie Kosky fascinates the audience, stir them to raucous applause.
