Overview

Francesco Cavalli’s classic opera, L’Ormindo, continues the run of high-profile productions during the first season at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre’s new Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Described as a ground-breaking collaboration with the Royal Opera, it was first staged in Venice in 1664 and is performed by just nine singers and eight musicians, making it ideal for the intimate setting of the theatre.

Offering audiences the chance to sample authentic Baroque opera, this production draws on the theatrical conventions of the time and is a rare chance to hear the opera performed in English.

The story of elopement, jealous lovers, fortune and destiny are brought vividly to life under the direction of Kasper Holten, director of the Royal Opera, and Christian Curnyn, one of the most highly regarded Baroque specialists of today.
