Following recent Olivier-nominated productions with The Royal Opera, we're very proud to be returning to the candlelit intimacy of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, with Luigi Rossi's dark portrayal of the Orpheus story, conducted by Christian Curnyn and directed by Keith Warner
We're truly delighted that Early Opera Company has received a nomination in this year's Olivier Awards, for Outstanding Achievement in Opera.
Monteverdi 'Orfeo' for free, online, on Wednesday 21 January from 7.15pm
This was a concert to be treasured… The Early Opera Company’s sparkling concert performance … was a tonic… The company celebrates Handel’s animation to perfection.
The Early Opera Company has been on a roll recently with its Handel… Curnyn, directing from the harpsichord, led a detailed, precise and zippy performance from his ensemble.
An extremely classy account… Curnyn shows such an easy command of the idiom: there is no aggressive accenting or exaggeration of tempo.
