Monteverdi Monday – Richard Croft & Patricia Schumann

Richard Croft and Patricia Schumann as Nerone and Poppea sing Pur ti miro. It’s not an "authentic" performance, although the edition was prepared by René Jacobs. But when Richard Croft is singing, who cares? This is from 1993; he had (and still has) such a bright clear, unaffected voice.  And the staging is kind of erotic, in a non-explicit way. Happy Monteverdi Monday!

L'Incoronazione di Poppea: Pur ti miro


  1. This is quite lovely and I agree with you re Richard Croft. I checked with Amazon and apparently this DVD is no longer in the catalogue, correct?

    1. Thanks for your comment, David.
      I just looked and it does seem to be available:
      Also I noticed (with surprise) that one apparently can rent/borrow it from Netflix! It looks like I am off on another quest!!
