Founded by famed viola da gamba virtuoso Cristiano Contadin, the ensemble Opera Prima is dedicated to exploring the Italian repertoire of the 1600s (the Seicento) with technical mastery and buoyant enthusiasm. They make their BEMF début alongside superstar soprano Amanda Forsythe, in a program that explores the passions of the human soul. Thrill to stunningly evocative masterpieces from the most brilliant and imaginative Italian composers of the 17th century.
