Fresh from their performances in the Festival production of Monteverdi's great opera The Return of Ulysses, the multi-award-winning Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin comes to St Canice’s with a one-off programme, specially designed for Kilkenny, which explores the extraordinary generation of composers that brought Italian music out of the Renaissance and into a spectacular new age.

It’s more than 25 since the Akademie für Alte Musik last performed in Ireland - don't miss this rare chance to experience one of the world’s greatest early music ensembles in the magnificent setting of the Cathedral.
