The Yale Baroque Opera Project (YBOP) is pleased to present Monteverdi’s opera, Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, the eighth—and most ambitious—YBOP production since its founding in 2007. Starring a cast of Yale’s most outstanding undergraduate singers, and featuring two outstanding YBOP graduates, Monteverdi’s opera is famed for its emotional power. In its portrayal of the whole range of human experience—love, hate, deception, reconciliation--and its powerful cathartic effect, all expressed through music, Il ritorno d’Ulisse is an eloquent demonstration of why opera was invented, more than four centuries ago.
