Inside the music...

VIDEO: The Genius of Monteverdi

In 2017 Bristol hosted the award-winning Monteverdi 450 series which saw Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists perform exquisite renditions of the composer's three surviving operas. Two years on from the UK premiere, held at Colston Hall, discover the reasons why Monteverdi's music so enraptured his audience - and why his music is still so loved today.
