SEMI-STAGED PRODUCTION Jeannette Sorrell, conductor and harpsichord Karim Sulayman, Orfeo Erica Schuller, Euridice Cleveland's dynamic period-music ensemble Apollo's Fire: The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra returns with a semi-staged production of Monteverdi's beloved and timeless L'Orfeo. Director Jeannette Sorrell leads her superb instrumentalists and vocalists on a dramatic journey to Hades and back, following the mythic Orpheus on his tragic mission--including a reconstruction of the work's original ending, in which our hero perishes at the hands of Bacchus' followers. "Monteverdi's Orfeo was a triumph for Jeannette Sorrell, showing us new dimensions of her genius" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
