The New York Continuo Collective

Boston Early Music Festival 2015 Fringe Performance

L'Orfeo
Favola in musica (1647)

Composed by Luigi Rossi, Libretto by Francesco Buti

 

Directed by Grant Herreid & Charles Weaver
Paul Shipper, Stage Director

The Collective’s usual array of lutes, theorbos, gambas, guitars, keyboards, and strings accompany a staged performance of Rossi's setting of the oft-told tale of Orfeo and his quest to rescue Euridice from the underworld. This performance, as well as the enirety of our undertakings are dedicated to the loving memory of Pat O'Brien, the genius, and heart and soul of the New York Continuo Collective.
