Monteverdi: Opera "L’Orfeo"
Monteverdi: Opera
Description

New Belgrade Opera and Opera-Theater “Madlenianum” (Serbia) presented their first Monteverdi opera “L’Incoronatione di Poppea” in 2014 to the great acclaim. Three years later, in the year that celebrates the 450th anniversary of the great composer’s birth, we welcome them with performance of Monteverdi’s “L’Orfeo”, which is generally acknowledged as “the first opera”. Written in 1607, Monteverdi’s use of vocal and orchestral colors, played on period instruments of the time, put the basis for the further development of opera as a genre, and his expert vocal writing inspired generations to come. The story of Orpheus’ search for his love in the Underworld has inspired not only Monteverdi, but later also Gluck and many other composers. Expert coaching and direction by experts in historical performance Marijana Mijanović and Predrag Gosta, and sublime stage direction by Aleksandar Nikolić, provide a rare opportunity to enjoy this music in the manner as the composer intended it.

FUTURE READ IN CONCRETE AND STONE
FUTURE READ IN CONCRETE AND STONE

Future Read in Concrete and Stone is a gaze into communist art and politics of the 20th century, a trip through the partisan forests of Yugoslavia, a picnic at Kozara, Sutjeska and Kadinjača, a voluntary labour action for building a future through temporary and contingent theatre experience. This is a performance structure made of invitations: invitation to imagine, invitation to look and decipher the society and, eventually, an invitation to physically engage collective body intelligence.  In 1917, in the wake of the October revolution, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin claims in one of his...
