Baroque opera with men from Basel

Monteverdi’s opera is about the returning home of Odysseus. But instead of the hero, men from Basel will occupy the stage. Together with the singers and the instrumental ensemble I Musici de la Cetra, they tell of Odysseus’ fate, a tale of belonging and alienation. The young Polish director Krystian Lada has already picked up various awards for his innovative music theatre productions. Monteverdi’s baroque masterpiece meets the electronic sounds of the British producer Matthew Herbert. Mezzo-soprano Katarina Bradić returns to Theater Basel in the role of Penelope.
