Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers is in every respect one of the towering masterpieces of the Baroque era.
The grandeur of its conception was unprecedented. No other surviving work from the period is written on such a scale, combining the grandest of public music with the most intimate of solo songs.
Gloriana is thrilled to present our first complete performance of the 1610 Vespers.
We will be joined by some of the finest Baroque singers and instrumentalists in the country and in the stunning acoustics of Sacred Heart Carlton this will be an unforgettable experience.
Tickets available on the Gloriana Website now.
