About Gluck's Orfeo Ed Euridice

Last seen at the Met in the title role of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo stars as the mythic hero who ventures into the underworld to rescue his beloved Euridice. Soprano Ying Fang is his ill-fated bride, with soprano Elena Villalón in her company debut as Amore, the god of love who sets Orfeo on his quest. Christian Curnyn makes his Met debut conducting Gluck’s sublime setting of the ancient tale, enlivened by exuberant choreography from the legendary Mark Morris and featuring members of his renowned dance group.

The myth of the musician Orpheus—who travels to the underworld to retrieve his dead wife, Eurydice—probes the deepest questions of desire, grief, and the power (and limits) of art. Gluck turned to this legend as the basis for a work as they were developing their ideas for a new kind of opera. Disillusioned with the inflexible forms of the genre as they existed at the time, the composer sought to reform the operatic stage with a visionary and seamless union of music, poetry, and dance.

Ambitious, Refreshing, Masterful, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you like it all-100 performers on stage, great choreography, poetic verses, fine music orchestration and the wonderful voice of A R Costanzo

Don’t see it if you expect a traditional opera with grand costumes and staging or you do not have an appreciation for dance in opera.

Great staging, Great singing, Delightful

See it if into an 18th-century dance-rich countertenor-led myth about second chances. Gorgeous vertical sets, huge cast, great lead performances.

Don’t see it if well... the plot is a bit thin, and the dancers-in-street-cloths shtick is tired. But the beauty of this production is through the roof.

Don’t see it if You just HATE opera. I thought it was beautiful and I don’t go often but I do like to go occasionally. It makes me feel grand.
