John La Bouchardière (writer/director) was born in Hampshire, was a chorister at Magdalen College, Oxford and studied at Birmingham University before training at English National Opera. He is noted for his innovative adaptations for stage and screen and has directed theatrical productions across the UK, Europe and the USA.
Since creating The Full Monteverdi, live productions include The Blind (Lera Auerbach) for Lincoln Center, New York, and premiere stagings of both El Niño (John Adams) and Path of Miracles (Joby Talbot) for Spoleto Festival USA. Other film and television includes Music Room (TV series, 2010), Ode à la gastronomie (short, 2016) and The Stag Hunt (short, 2021).
I Fagiolini is a British vocal ensemble specialising in early music and contemporary music. Founded by Robert Hollingworth at Oxford in 1986, the group won the UK Early Music Network’s Young Artists’ Competition in 1988 and a Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2006.
It has an international reputation for presenting music in unusual ways, especially for featuring in John La Bouchardière's production and film The Full Monteverdi, worldwide. I Fagiolini has recorded some 15 CDs, mostly for Chandos Records, as well as a DVD of Orazio Vecchi's L'Amfiparnaso with Simon Callow. The group has recorded the recently found Striggio 40-part mass (1566), released in March 2011. The CD won the Early Music category in the 2011 Gramophone Awards and a Diapason d'Or de l'Année.
