Orphée & Eurydice

Gluck | Tragedy in three acts

With the Euridice of Caccini and Peri, and above all L’Orfeo of Monteverdi, the myth of Orpheus has presided over the birth of opera, which has continued to draw inspiration from the tale ever since. What more iconic symbol of the power of music and song than that of the poet’s voice opening the gates of hell itself?

“I’ve lost my Eurydice”… between amorous passion, courage and disobediance, Gluck’s Orphée & Eurydice revisits the myth. The young Maëlle Poésy, very much in the spotlight in recent years, here directs her first opera after several stage productions at the Théâtre Dijon Bourgogne and a show presented at the Festival d’Avignon during the summer of 2016.
