For our final performance for the year, Ludovico’s Band collaborates with The Consort of Melbourne to present two extended madrigals. The only surviving excerpt from his opera L’Arianna, the heart-wrenching ‘Lament’ contains some of Monteverdi’s most vivid writing. And in a final tribute to this great Italian master the two ensembles present a rare performance of Il ballo delle ingrate (The Ballet of the Ungrateful Ladies), written for a wedding celebration in Mantua in 1608.
