June 2015 Festival | Invention & Discovery

IMMERSE YOURSELF in what The Times, London hails as “The world’s leading festival of early music.” June 7-14, 2015!


A once-in-a-lifetime celebration of Monteverdi with staged productions of his three survivng operas: Ulisse, Poppea, and Orfeo. Artistic Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs, Opera Director Gilbert Blin, and Orchestra Director Robert Mealy bring these iconic works to life with an all-star cast of singers and instrumentalists!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2015 Festival! Details on the 2017 Festival (June 11–18, 2017) will be released in 2016.

The Monteverdi Trilogy is the centerpiece of a weeklong celebration of Early Music with dozens of concerts featuring distinguished artists, ensembles, and dancers (including Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with the BEMF Vocal & Chamber Ensembles, Hespèrion XXI directed by Jordi Savall, Sequentia directed by Benjamin Bagby, and 13 more unforgettable concerts), the world-famous Exhibition now at the Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown, and much more.
