Opera Buff: Monteverdi

This is definitely not Monteverdi as it would have been performed in his lifetime, but I think this kind of staging works very well with this music. Trisha Brown’s choreography shown here is as beautiful as the music. It’s also far more interesting to watch than the stylized stand and gesture style that would be “correct” for this period. This is a good example or rethinking a work for modern audiences.
