THE EARLY music ensemble Musica Aeterna was scheduled to perform for three evenings in the Spanish Bilbao at the Arriaga Theatro between October 10 and 12.

The ensemble's programme included one concert of works by scarcely known French composers, as well as two opera evenings, during which they played music to Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice. Its Spanish production, directed by Joan Font, premiered last year. Musica Aeterna joined the Coral Andra Mari chorus, under the baton of Stephen Stubbs, to accompany contra-tenor Flavio Oliver in the role of Orfeo and soprano Alwyn Mellor in her part of Euridice.

After its return from Spain, Musica Aeterna will hold a ceremonial concert in Bratislava on October 30 to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
