Staged for I Fagiolini by Peter Wilson MBE, The Boat from Venice to Padua (1605) is a short musical comedy by monk and musical prankster Adriano Banchieri. To balance this froth, I Fagiolini will perform some profound music by one of Venice’s greatest sons, Claudio Monteverdi who arrived in Venice 400 years ago in 1613.
