If you missed Monteverdi in Mantua - the Genius of the Vespers on BBC Two, it's available on iPlayer and well worth viewing. Award-winning actor and art historian Simon Russell Beale CBE narrates the story of Claudio Monteverdi (c.1630) and his relationship with the notorious Duke of Mantua, out of which came Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610.
