We are thrilled to be bringing Handel’s extraordinary oratorio 'Solomon' back to its original home in Covent Garden.


“15 fine players who caress the bare bones of Monteverdi’s score into wonderfully luscious, responsive accompaniments”

The Times ★★★★★, Monteverdi 'The Return of Ulysses'

“Curnyn’s players glittered, danced, scythed and at times improvised their way through a fuller version of the score than we usually hear. Monteverdi has never sounded more persuasive, not even from Gardiner and company.”

The Arts Desk ★★★★☆, Monteverdi 'The Return of Ulysses'

“The sensational musicianship is not to be missed.”

The Observer ★★★★☆, Monteverdi 'The Return of Ulysses'

“these expert musicians let Monteverdi speak to us like a contemporary.”

What's on Stage ★★★★☆, Monteverdi 'The Return of Ulysses'

“Now that it’s teamed up with Christian Curnyn’s Early Opera Company, the Royal Opera seems unable to put a foot wrong with its forays into early music.”

What's on Stage, Rossi 'Orpheus'

“Find anything exciting happening in period opera in the UK and Curnyn will be involved, whether it’s conducting at the Wanamaker or ENO, recording Handel or directing his own projects.”

The Spectator, Rameau 'Castor and Pollux'
