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.
