A two-year workshop with young professionals where they worked, together with Gloria Moretti and Francis Biggi on recreating the music for Angelo Poliziano’s 1480 pre-opera, ‘La Fabula di Orpheo’ that survived in text-only form. The fully staged modern production directed by Sandrine Anglade was performed throughout France, Switzerland and Belgium and recorded for K617 (Choc de la Musique, 5 diapasons). It was also the subject of a study day at the University of the Sorbonne.
