About

Claudio Monteverdi developed the principles of opera with L丹rfeo in the first decade of the 17th-century. At the very end of his life he wrote L段ncoronazione di Poppea. The opera marked a decisive move from allegorical and mythic elements towards a historical subject the love affair between the Roman Emperor Nero and his mistress Poppea. His final masterpiece, where the beauty of the arias vanquished the decadence of the storyline, was first performed in the year of his death. For decades John Eliot Gardiner has been at the forefront of Monteverdi performance and scholarship, and for the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi痴 birth in 2017 he conducted all three of the composer痴 surviving full-length operas. This semi-staged production, recorded in Venice痴 historical Teatro La Fenice is part of that acclaimed cycle.
