Christoph Willibald Gluck’s exquisite drama introduces us to Orpheus, the poet and musician whose every word and note communicate the most overwhelming love for his Eurydice. In this contemporary setting, Orphée the poet and musician is reimagined as a choreographer, and his beloved Eurydice is a ballerina. (7/18)
