Opera in four acts (1762)
1859 version by Hector Berlioz
Libretto by Pierre-Louis Moline, sung in French

In 1859, Berlioz created a hybrid version of “Orphée Et Eurydice” using Gluck’s original manuscripts – an approach rare at the time. Stage director Aurélien Bory sees this version as a true choral opera, one that was described as “just breathtaking” by Opera Journal. The young French mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa delivers a thoughtful and expressive Orphée, along with French Canadian soprano Hélène Guilmette as Eurydice, and the French-Italian mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre as Amour. Ensemble Pygmalion, conducted by Raphaël Pichon, were admired by Le Monde for their “perfection of intonation” and “spiritual cohesion”.
