In his penultimate opera, based on text adapted from Homer’s

Odyssey, Monteverdi ventures further than ever before into the depths of human emotion. In this ‘dramma in musica’ human frailty falls victim to time, fortune and love. Gods and humans, comic and intensely serious characters and spectacular scenic effects are brought together in a wonderfully rich and effective texture. Pierre Audi’s highly stylised and timeless production is captured here in a live recording from

Het Muziektheater Amsterdam.

‘A strikingly staged, beautifully sung production.’--New York Times

‘Pierre Audi’s daringly minimalist production bespeaks a belief in opera as theatre that one rarely encounters… This is opera as music drama, and an experience not to be missed.’--New York Post

‘That the presentness of theatre and the pastness of music can coincide is one of the miracles of opera, and is one of the miracles of Mr. Audi’s production.’--The New Yorker
