2022-23Concert Season

L'Orfeo in Concert: San Francisco


We’re taking the show on the road! Experience the power of Monteverdi’s masterpiece, Orfeo in one of San Francisco’s most iconic settings, Grace Cathedral. Join us the following day for an exciting performance in the historic First Church Berkeley UCC.

The greatest musical myth of all is the story of Orpheus. Monteverdi’s setting was the first unqualified operatic masterpiece, full of dramatic word painting, narrative urgency, rich orchestration, and exquisite writing for vocal ensemble. L’Orfeo feels as fresh and full of relevance as it must have at its premiere in 1607. Monteverdi specialist and GRAMMY® winner Stephen Stubbs leads Pacific MusicWorks and the Dark Horse Consort in a concert version featuring Colin Balzer in the title role. Having assembled a cast for the ages here, PMW will also produce a commercial recording, as well as bring L’Orfeo on tour to San Francisco
