Monteverdi forged a vivid, new musical style with this choral masterpiece by evoking the struggle between the archaic and the revolutionary. Led by Jeannette Sorrell, award-winning harpsichordist, the Apollo’s Fire period orchestra, chamber choir and seven solo vocalists bring this rich, magnificent work to one of Houston’s most dramatic spaces. A pre-concert talk with Jeannette Sorrell starts at 6:45 p.m.

This national tour by Apollo's Fire is supported by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
