A Night at the Opera

Feb. 8, 2017

Cambridge International Opera Asian Tour
Hong Kong Singapore and Thailand

The first piece of our concert is by Monterverdi:

Pur ti miro (L'incoronazione di Poppea)

It is sung in one of the most beautiful and romantic scenes of all opera on Monterverdi's final opera, L’incoronazione di Poppea (Act III, Scene 7), the duet aria “Pur ti miro, pur ti godo.”

The music for L'incoronazione di Poppea has been praised for its melody, innovations when the genre of opera was only a few years old.

It will be sung by our countertenor Tim
Morgan and Soprano Billie Robson.

You can listen an u tube of this jaw dropping aria:
