Juan Diego Flórez dazzled audiences and critics alike when he played the virtuoso role of Orphée in La Scala s first ever staging of Gluck s opera in its French version: Juan Diego Flórez delivered a lesson in style. His tone is darker and his projection more self-effacing than in the past, but class is permanent. His agility and legato are utterly thrilling.

The ovations were never-ending. (Corriere della sera) The present release is a production by Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London Recorded live at Teatro alla Scala, Milan, March 2018. Gluck s Orpheo ed Euridice was first performed in 1762.

It is the first of Gluck s reform operas, in which he attempted to replace the abstruse plots and overly complex music of opera sera with a noble simplicity in both the music and the drama. The present production was staged by Hofesh Shechter and John Fulljames.

History

Orfeo Ed Eurydice

Premiere: Court Theatre (Burgtheater), Vienna, 1762.

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.
