      GRAMMY award-winner and Monteverdi specialist Stephen Stubbs will lead Pacific MusicWorks and tenor Colin Balzer in an in-concert performance of the work, considered to be an early operatic masterpiece.

      Orfeo includes rich orchestration and a host of exotic instruments and balances themes of jubilation and tragedy.
