Monteverdi 450 Tour
30 November -1
at Malvern Theatres
Leading choir and period-instrument ensemble, Armonico Consort, is celebrating the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi with a 5-date tour of his early Baroque masterpiece, the famous Vespers of 1610.
Over 400 years old, this astounding work is full of surprises, from serene beauty to dramatic choral outbursts, colourful instrumental writing to incredible vocal acrobatics. Theatrical effects are created by positioning singers in different locations within the venues and it also features unusual early instruments including the cornett (an early wind instrument) and sackbut (forerunner of the modern trombone), played by members of the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble.
