Looking back at Orpheus: Orfeo

Boston Early Music Festival

The Thanksgiving Weekend streaming event "Looking Back at Orpheus" features the June 2015 performance of Monteverdi’s Orfeo broadcast on Friday, November 27, 2020 at 8pm and the November 2011 performance of Charpentier’s La Descente d’Orphée aux Enfers and La Couronne de Fleurs broadcast on Sunday, November 29, 2020 at 3pm, both from the BEMF Chamber Opera Series. This will be the first time the Boston Early Music Festival has publicly shared complete archival video of their critically acclaimed productions. These broadcasts will follow a two-week marathon of new video content created for this special event, including documentaries on the making of each production, video talks, and a 30-minute excerpt from BEMF’s 2017 fully-staged production of Campra’s Le Carnaval de Venise, featuring an Orpheus-themed “opera-within-an-opera” attended by the characters of the larger story.
