First Nights - Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo and the Birth of Opera

Thomas Forrest Kelly, HarvardX

Learn about Claudio Monteverdi's L 'Orfeo , one of the first operas ever written.

Claudio Monteverdi's L 'Orfeo premiered in Mantua in 1607, and continues to be regarded as one of the most important examples of early opera. With L 'Orfeo , Monteverdi helped to establish the techniques and traditions that continue to inform the genre of opera to this day.

Harvard's Thomas Forrest Kelly (Morton B. Knafel Professor of Music) guides learners through the first half of L 'Orfeo , highlighting aspects of operatic form and dramatic technique, the rehearsals and cultural context for the premiere performance, and the work's continued relevance today.
