IPR broadcasts Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice

Iowa Public Radio kicks off its 2020 Operas in October series with a radio broadcast of our 2016 production of Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice. Based on the Greek myth of Orpheus, countless musical moments in Orphée et Eurydice rank among the most powerful, familiar and beautiful in all of opera, including “The Dance of the Blessed Spirits” and “Che farò senza Euridice.” Sung in French and using the version created in the 19th century by Hector Berlioz for Pauline Viardot, this production marks the company’s first foray into early music. Featuring mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano as Orphée, soprano Susannah Biller as Eurydice, Cree Carico as Amour with Maestro Gary Thor Wedow conducting the DMMO Festival Orchestra.
