One of opera’s most beautiful masterpieces, 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. The Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra presents “Orphée et Eurydice” in the Paris version, which contains thrilling ballet sequences that will come to vivid life under the direction of and in the choreography by the legendary John Neumeier. Lyric’s production stars Dmitry Korchak as Orphée, with Andriana Chuchman as Eurydice and Lauren Snouffer as Amour. The Chicago Tribune deemed their take on Gluck “triumphant” and “miraculously fresh and alive.” The production features Gluck’s reworking of the original German opera into a French-language production featuring ballet. “To hear [Gluck’s] songful art pour out uninterrupted […] [is] to understand the overwhelming power of melody.” (The New York Times)
