Orphée et Eurydice

Nederlandse Reisopera

Nederlandse Reisopera - Orphée et Eurydice

The opera Orphée et Eurydice tells the well-known story of Orpheus, who wants to bring his beloved Eurydice back from the realm of the dead.  

The Orpheus myth deals with timeless themes of art, death and love, often focusing on the latter; Orpheus even risks his own life for his dead lover. But against the divine commandment, he looks back at Eurydice and in doing so loses her again. In composer Gluck's version, however, the opera has a happy ending. The character Amor and the power of love are sung about and Orpheus is united with his Eurydice on earth. Gluck has reduced the well-known Orpheus story to its essence. A compact drama for three characters:  Orphée, Eurydice and L'Amour.
