Christoph Willibald Von Gluck’s influential opera Orfeo ed Euridice is based on the myth of Orpheus, who is granted permission to travel to the underworld to rescue his wife Euridice on the condition that he not look at her until they are back on earth.
A story so weighted in tragedy, the power of the Orpheus myth lies in its balance between mortality and hope, transcendence and love. Orfeo ed Euridice is the most popular of Gluck’s work and features the famous aria “Che farò senza Euridice”. Peter Whelan conducts this concert performance of Gluck’s most favourite work with the Irish Baroque Orchestra and with Sharon Carty and Sarah Power performing the title roles joined by an ensemble of four singers.
