After Hades snatches Eurydice from his arms, Orpheus descends into hell a second time to rescue her from death.

Musica Antica Rotherhithe present the first staging of Belli's opera since its premiere in Florence in 1616. Written when opera as an art form was still in its infancy, it shows the New Music of the early Baroque at its most experimental, expressive and emotionally powerful.

Lasting under 1 hour, it also makes the perfect introduction to music of this period for those new to early opera. Belli's opera will be accompanied by music by his contemporary Claudio Monteverdi, and Monteverdi's student and most prolific composer of opera of the 17th century, Francesco Cavalli.

A bar selling cream teas, wine, beer and home-infused gin cocktails will operate during the interval and after the perfomance.

This performance will be Musica Antica Rotherhithe's first with a live audience since their performance of Falvetti's Diluvio Universale in February 2020.
