BREMF: La Dafne
Time & Location
About The Event
La Dafne was first performed just one year after Monteverdi’s Orfeo (for many people, the first great opera ever written), with a libretto also by Rinuccini and also based on a story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
With its rich contrasts of textures and sonorities, opportunities for expressive and at times virtuosic singing, and the important role of the intermedia-style choruses, this is a highly entertaining and delightful work that deserves to be a lot better known. This production of La Dafne will follow a week of intensive training with an auditioned cast of highly talented young singers and selected players. Performances at 15:00 and 19:30 daily.
