Orfeo On Operavision

Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, a co-production with United Fall in partnership with the Irish Baroque Orchestra, starring Sharon Carty as Orfeo, is available to stream on-demand now via Operavision, Europe's digital opera house.

A grief-stricken musician goes to the underworld in search of his wife. He is allowed to retrieve her on one condition – that he not look at her until they are back on earth.

Gluck’s most famous opera was a radical departure from the musical dramas of the day. A revolutionary new mix of text, music and dance, it was the pinnacle of his pursuit for beautiful simplicity and dramatic truth. Sharon Carty delivers a compelling performance as the legendary Orfeo in this intimate production.
