Monteverdi: L'Incoronazione di Poppea / Rousset/Les Talens Lyriques, Haymon, Chance, McFadden [2 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Poppea is a potent work from opera’s first true creator and pioneering genius. The fact that, at the close of this highly charged ‘dramma in musica’, Monteverdi allows evil to triumph over good (albeit temporarily) has frequently led to his being decried as amoral. Monteverdi’s timeless masterpiece, which creates a deep involvement in performers and audiences alike, is brilliantly captured in this High Definition live recording of Pierre Audi’s moving and beautifully styled production from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam in 1994.
