An Aria A Day #162

‘Pur ti miro’
from L’incoronazione di Poppea
by Claudio Monteverdi
Piano Jillianne Stoll

17th October, 2020

OQ Ensemble members soprano Sofia Troncoso and mezzo-soprano Xenia Puskarz Thomas perform ‘Pur ti miro’ from Monteverdi’s last opera, L’incoronazione di Poppea.

Written when the genre of opera was only a few decades old, L’incoronazione di Poppea was praised for its originality and for its reflection of the human attributes of its characters… perhaps the first foray into reality entertainment!
