A concert, two discussions, and an exhibition of materials related to Luciano Berio’s “revisitation” of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea. Two days of events, culminating with a concert by TENET on Thursday evening, exploring Monteverdi's impact on the music and ideas of the 20th and 21st centuries, and the way his work stimulated artists in a range of media — particularly Luciano Berio (1925-2003).
