Description: Hallowe'en has passed but who doesn't love a little more spookiness! This episode of Flat Baroque features the New London Concort's performance of Claudio Monteverde's L'Orfeo. First performed in 1607 with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio, L'Orfeo is one of the earliest operas that is still performed today. There are many characters including Orfeo, Eurydices, Speranza, Caronte, Prosoperina and Plutone performed with the vocal talents of John Mark Ainsley, Catherine Bott, Tessa Bonner, Julia Gooding, Christopher Robson, Robert Evans and Simon Grant.
