Our first concert from the 2004 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht features a stunning recreation--the first reconstructable work that had the word "opera" attached to it, Emilio de' Cavalieri's Rappresentatione di Anima e di Corpo, premiered in 1600 .

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in honor of Misty.
