In honour of the great Nikolaus Harnoncourt the Vienna Film Festival presents Monteverdi’s first opera “L’Orfeo”, conducted by the remarkable artist Harnoncourt himself. The legendary Monteverdi cycle, mounted in the Zurich Opera House during the late 1970s, is one of the finest achievements of the mutually inspiring partnership of director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. With sets of startling visual appeal, lovingly recreated costumes, and the sound of original instruments or carefully reconstructed copies, this production is pure delight.
