Monteverdi, Mantoue & Italy
“The theme of the festival each year is not an end in itself, a self-imposed restriction to creating a programme, but more of a guiding light that lends a unique color to each edition of the event. “La Folia” is a venue that has made it is possible to encounter early music in all of its facets, a series of concerts over an extended Whitsunday weekend, each “an earful” in itself.
