Why See Metropolitan Opera - Orfeo ed Euridice?

Classical & Opera

The timeless love story

Captivating and ebullient, Mark Morris's Orfeo ed Euridice first debuted at the Met in 2007 and now returns as part of the 2019/20 Season. Vivid and contemporary, discover the ancient Greek myth once more with Jamie Barton as Orfeo, tasked with diving into the underworld to retrieve their lover Eurydice. Set to Gluck's inimitable score, this much-anticipated revival is conducted by Mark Wigglesworth.

What is the story?

Orfeo mourns his recently departed wife Eurydice at her tomb, despairing at the thought of living without her. When Amore offers him the chance to see her again, he accepts the quest, his heart full of a possible reunion. However, he must accept the terms of his task, when he rescues her, he is not to look upon her before they make their return. Orfeo stills his nerve and resolves to complete the journey, regardless of the implications.

With a dangerous journey to Elysium, the wrath of the Furies and one very confused lover, Orfeo and Eurydice is the perfect story for fans of opera, old and new.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
