Village Opera Society: Monteverdi
Village Opera Society—"Claudio Monteverdi's Orfeo and the Beginnings of Opera" presented by Ken Slowik, Artistic Director, Smithsonian Chamber Music Society
Kenneth Slowik, Capitol Hill resident, cellist, conductor, founding member of many chamber groups, and Curator of Musical Instruments at the Smithsonian, will join us to talk about early opera composer Monteverdi. There is no upcoming performance of a Monteverdi opera. Indeed, there may not have been a Monteverdi show in Washington since Opera Lafayette’s 2017 “Evening of Monteverdi.” But after this evening, we will be prepared for the future.
Please bring nibbles or drinks to share.
