Gluck‘s wonderful but neglected 1774 opera Iphigénie en Tauride, inspired by the Greek legend, is treated with forceful and convincing simplicity in Claus Guth’s revolutionary 2001 production staged at the Zurich Opera House. The psychological drama in a tense atmosphere of fears and trauma is underlined by Guth’s use of huge masks and enclosed spaces. Conductor William Christie and his typically transparent but never cold orchestral sound perfectly match the descriptive elements in Gluck’s score, while the Armenian mezzo-soprano Juliette Galstian as a fabulously good Iphigénie, the leading American opera baritone Rodney Gilfry as Oreste and the late South African tenor Deon van der Walt as Pylade head a superb cast.
