NEW PRODUCTION

ORPHÉE ET EURYDICE

(Orpheus and Eurydice)

by Christoph Willibald Gluck
SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 15
Sung in French with projected English translations

Featuring The Joffrey Ballet


 

Orphée et Eurydice Opera Overview

One of opera’s most beautiful masterpieces, Gluck’s exquisite drama introduces us to Orpheus, the poet and musician whose every word and note communicate the most overwhelming love for his Eurydice. Refusing to accept her death, he courageously journeys to the Underworld to bring her back to life. The music reaches true heights of eloquence and emotion. Lyric presents Orphée et Eurydice in the Paris version, which contains thrilling ballet sequences that will come to vivid life under the direction and choreography of the legendary John Neumeier (pictured above). This highly-anticipated production marks Lyric’s first collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet.
“To hear [Gluck’s] songful art pour out uninterrupted…[is] to understand the overwhelming power of melody.”
The New York Times
