Is he or isn't he the one? After a long wandering journey, Ulysses returns to his wife Penelope. She has remained loyal to him, but she doesn't recognize him any more. Time and again she puts him to the test. Will the gods come to their aid? Is man merely a plaything of time, fate and love? Or is he the master of his own destiny? Monteverdi’s Ulisse
– one of the first operas, and one of the best.
