    Orfeo ed Euridice | Longborough Festival Opera
    Jeremy Silver, Longborough Festival Opera, Longborough Festival Opera Orchestra
    Longborough Festival Opera House Moreton-in-Marsh GL56 0QF
    United Kingdom

    Orfeo ed Euridice is based on the tale of Orpheus, one of the most famous and beloved Greek myths, and features some of Gluck’s best known pieces of music including the ‘Dance of the Blessed Spirits’ and ‘Che farò senza Euridice’.

    Marking the composer’s attempt to reform the complex plots and music of baroque opera, Orfeo ed Euridice reconnected the music with the drama. Its underground rescue-mission plot influenced many works that followed, including Fidelio and The Magic Flute.

    This new production from director Maria Jagusz and designer Richard Studer (Jenufa, Longborough 2016) is Longborough's Young Artist Production for 2017 – in which emerging singers and players unite in their steps towards stardom.

    Longborough Festival Opera is one of the UK's finest country opera houses, an intimate 500-seat theatre set amidst the glorious rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Relax and enjoy the picturesque grounds during the 90-minute dining interval: whether you reserve a place in one of the exclusive restaurants or simply bring your own picnic to enjoy.

    Orfeo ed Euridice
    Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714-1787)
