Orphee et Eurydice  
Lyric Opera Orphee et Eurydice
 
One of the most influential works in the history of opera, Orfeo ed Eurydice (1762) - presented at Lyric in its original Italian version most recently in 2005/06 - was revised significantly by Gluck for the Paris Opera in 1774. This version altered the role of Orpheus from alto castrato to tenor, while also adding a significant amount of ballet music to the score (including two celebrated scenes, the "Dance of the Furies" and the "Dance of the Blessed Spirits"). Familiar from Greek myths, the plot centers on the poet-musician Orphee (Orpheus), whose singing was so beautiful that it could charm the fierce guardians of the Underworld. After receiving encouragement from the god of love, Amour, Orphee travels to Hades to bring his dead wife, Eurydice, back to earth. Integral to the production will be the participation of The Joffrey Ballet in the company's first collaboration with Lyric.
