Tancredi e Clorinda

Love and fate


One of Monteverdi’s most striking compositions is his mini-opera Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda. In it, a narrator tells the tale of the battle between the crusader Tancredi and the woman with whom he is in love, the Muslim fighter Clorinda. Tancredi stabs Clorinda, and it is only after he removes her helmet that he realises who she is. La Fonte Musica pays tribute to the master of the madrigal with a reconstruction of this exceptional work for which he developed the stile concitato.
