Claudio Monteverdi

Vespro della beata Vergine

Duration: 135 min / Intermission 20 min

Conductor Leonardo García Alarcón founded the instrumental and vocal ensemble Cappella Mediterranea in 2005, interested in researching and deepening involvement with Latin Baroque music. Monteverdi’s work has, naturally, been one of the points of greatest attention in the activity of the Cappella Mediterranea. They present in the Grand Auditorium, in collaboration with the Gulbenkian Choir, one of the most innovative and majestic creations of the Baroque repertoire, Vespers. In a stunning exploration of various choral registers, Monteverdi has erected a passionate and engaging masterpiece.
