Why See Florida Grand Opera - Orfeo ed Euridice?
The Power Of Love and Music
Amidst the follies of the Baroque era, German composer Christoph Willibald Gluck demanded simplicity over flights of virtuosic fancy, a new school of opera that culminated in his dramatic masterpiece Orfeo ed Euridice. Don't miss Florida Grand Opera's new staging of the classic, in which they've cast rising opera star and countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo in the role of Orfeo, a part usually performed by a mezzo-soprano.
A poignant celebration of the power of love and music, the story is based on the greek myth about poet and musician Orfeo and his true love Euridice. The newly married couple are struck by tragedy when Euridice, escaping the advances of an unwanted suitor is bitten by a snake and dies. The grief stricken Orfeo descends into the underworld armed only with his lyre, ready to take on all obstacles in his path just to be reunited with his soul mate.
