Monteverdi's incredible opera, often said to be the first ever opera as we know it was brought to life by Matthew Eberhardt's contemporary production with the stylistic musical direction of Oliver-John Ruthven. In my debut for Hampstead Garden Opera I sang the role of Messegiera, also appearing in Act 2 as one of the "seductive torn-tighted Goth sirens surrounding Pluto" (Andrew Benson-Wilson, Early Music Review).
