Orpheus & Eurydice

October 1 - November 19, 2019

Orpheus's courage comes not from his strength but from his music, which can charm even the gatekeeper of Hades. The transcendent power of music, the musician as hero: these are the themes that have made the Orpheus myth the most popular subject for opera

Why See Orpheus & Eurydice?

Classical & Opera

Gluck's Soaring Reform Opera Masterpiece

The English National Orchestra welcomes renowned mezzo soprano Dame Sarah Connolly, company star Sarah Tynan and rising soprano Soraya Magi as Orpheus, Euyrdice and Love respectively in a thrilling revival of Gluck's epic reform opera Orpheus and Eurydice. A masterpiece of the 18th century opera canon, its music drives the story forward with some of the composer's best loved works, from the beloved aria 'J'ai perdu mon Eurydice' and the romantic 'Objet de mon amour'.

Based on the Greek myth, the opera tells the tale of renowned musician Orpheus, who deeply morns the loss of his wife Eurydice. The godlike embodiment of Love comes to him, telling him that he may go into the underworld to retrieve his soulmate on the condition that he can calm Hades' fearsome servants the Furies and keep his eyes ahead as he leads her back to the mortal realm. So Orpheus undertakes the supernatural journey in the ultimate show of eternal love for his bride.
