The ancient myth of the singer Orpheus, who storms the gates of hell to rescue his beloved, still rings true today. Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo was the groundbreaking operatic achievement of the 17th century. It receives impassioned treatment by Jeannette Sorrell and her hand-picked company of artists and dancers in this semi-staged production.

As one of the earliest examples of the form, and certainly the earliest that still has a place in the present repertoire 400 years later, L’Orfeo sets to music the famous myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, whose long-awaited wedding night ends in tragedy when Eurydice is bitten by a poisonous snake and Orfeo storms the gates of hell to rescue her. Jeannette Sorrell leads Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s celebrated Baroque orchestra, in this semi-staged production with period dancers.

St. Christopher's Episcopal Church (map)

During a time when classical instrumental music underwent a remarkable metamorphosis (from Brahms to Stravinsky and beyond), the popular love song experienced a parallel evolution, from the romantic lieder of 19th century Europe to the “American Standard” of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. This charming program will pair melodies from romantic masters such as Brahms, Schubert, Debussy, and Saint-Saëns with offerings from American songwriters such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.
