L’Orfeo on Tour with Christina Pluhar and L’Arpeggiata

Next spring, Rolando Villazon goes on tour with Christina Pluhar and the early music ensemble L’Arpeggiata, performing Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo in seven cities across Europe.

The tour begins in Vienna on May 2, continuing in Graz (May 5), Paris (May 11), Berlin (May 13), Leipzig (May 20), Düsseldorf (May 22), and Munich (May 24).

Together with eleven other singers and a 23-member orchestra, Rolando brings the ancient story of Orpheus to life, portraying a heroic myth that is one of the most fascinating and well-known subjects of antiquity.

Speaking of the project, Rolando shares: “It is an incredible pleasure and privilege to perform this absolute masterpiece together with Christina Pluhar and L’Arpeggiata. Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo is the perfect fusion of musical poetry and dramatic energy, bringing us closer to the full range of human fears and happiness.”
