Orfeo Viajero

SUMMER 2017. The TRANSLAB-youthopera of 17-18 is centered around Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. Luigi De Angelis and Hernàn Schvartzman, along with young artists, initiate a trip to the underworld. 

Young singers and instrumentalists are closely involved in all aspects of the staging, are given an intensive training in baroque music and above all gain stage experience in a professional context. This year the project is based around Claudio Monteverdi’s L’ Orfeo.  In the concept of Luigi De Angelis and Hernán Schvartzman inspiration for a trip to the underworld  is sought in a South American train.

As from 2015, the annual youth opera, in which youngsters between 15 and 25 years create a production, will alternate between the classical and non-classical repertoires.
