The Trojans are back in Berlin! The Monteverdi Choir and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique are presenting a semi-staged performance of Les Troyens by Hector Berlioz – the only German date in their 2023 European tour. This monumental opera, which was never performed in full during the composer’s lifetime, can now be heard in its entirety in Berlin for only the third time, after 1930 and 2010.
