Monteverdi at 450: Experiments in Sound, Image, and Movement

With a concert, two discussions, and an exhibition of materials related to Luciano Berio's “revisitation” of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, a collection now held at the Paul Sacher Foundation (Basel), these two days of events explore Monteverdi’s impact on the music and ideas of the 20th and 21st centuries, and how his work stimulated artists in a range of media—particularly Luciano Berio (1925–2003).
