Monteverdi Vespers of 1610
October 8October 15, 2022
The sensuous allure of the East and the structure of the West. They met in Venice in 1610 – and the splendor resounded. Jeannette Sorrell leads chorus, strings, brass, lutes, and soloists in Monteverdi’s sumptuous masterpiece.

“Hugely gripping… Sorrell and her forces brought superb energy and clarity… an exhilarating evening.”
– San Francisco Chronicle
