American Baroque Opera Company Presents
Monteverdi’s Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda

Virtual Performance

An operatic scena for three voices by Claudio Monteverdi, Il combattimento is one of the earliest pieces of opera, having its premiere in 1624. We present the scena with authentic Baroque performance practice, but the set and costumes will celebrate el Día de los Muertos.

This production, available online on and after November 1, is part of our ABOC @ Home series, which features three productions each with a questions and answer finale to help you understand the importance of the music.
