Orpheus’ Muses is a society which produces and innovates in the field of baroque opera and oratorio performance. Our programme highlights both early vocal and stage works.
In our 2017 programme, we present Henry Purcell’s timeless Dido & Aeneas on 2–3 April and 18-19 November directed by Iko Raatikainen in the flexibility of the Space for free arts, as well as Claudio Monteverdi’s sensuous The Coronation of Poppea between 25 August and 1 September, directed by Ville Saukkonen as part of Monteverdi’s 450th birthday celebrations. A warm welcome to our performances!
We are passionate about the growing interest in baroque music, are working to create interesting experiences for as wide an audience as possible. Working with audiences, and educating young musicians are fundamental aims of Orpheus’ Muses, and we are always looking for new opportunities to educate and inspire.
