“If there were a Nobel Prize for choirs, the Monteverdi Choir should be its laureate” - Le Monde


The three Monteverdi ensembles – the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique – are a leading force on the international music scene. World-class musicians and singers from many nationalities come together to share in the distinctive vision of our founder and music director, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, in ground-breaking projects that span eight centuries of musical masterpieces.

The Monteverdi ensembles regularly perform at the most prestigious international concert venues and festivals. The main focus of our 2017 season is a highly anticipated European and US tour of staged concert productions of the three surviving operas by Claudio Monteverdi. The operas have recently premiered and have generated a hugely positive response from audiences and critics alike, receiving multiple five-star reviews from The Guardian, The Times and The Art’s Desk.
