For its Spring 2016 Baroque Opera Project, the Collective has delved into scenes from Claudio Monteverdi's three operas, L'Orfeo (1607), Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria (1639), and L'Incoronazione di Poppea (1643). The staged performances will feature the usual large continuo contingent, with the addition of a string band led by Leah Nelson.
