April 20, 2018

Cleveland's period-music ensemble Apollo's Fire returns with a semi-staged production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. Director Jeannette Sorrell leads instrumentalists and vocalists on a dramatic journey to Hades and back, following the mythic Orpheus on his tragic mission—including a reconstruction of the work's original ending, in which Orpheus perishes at the hands of Bacchus' followers.
