In the first act, a herald declares that Alceste's husband Admeto, the King of Thessaly, is on the brink of death with little hope of being saved. However, Admeto's close friend Evandro believes that the Oracle of Apollo might help Admeto. As Alceste enters, she laments her husband's impending death with an extended recitative and the aria "Io non Chiedo"/"Grands dieux!" Alceste reiterates the need to plead with the gods to spare her husband before leading the people to the temple. Inside, the High Priest asks the Oracle about Admeto's fate; Admeto will indeed die unless someone else dies in his place. Alceste secretly decides to give up her own life to save her husband . . . - UNT Music Library note

Gluck's deeply moving masterpiece returned to the Met in 2007 after an absence of 90 years, featuring an all-star cast vibrantly conducted by Louis Langrée in his company debut.

He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham). At the sacrificial altar Oreste and Iphigénie suddenly realize they are brother and sister--and face slaughter by the angry king Thoas (William Shimell)

Gluck : an eighteenth-century portrait in letters and documents by Patricia Howard( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrated today for his historical significance as the one composer who did most to effect the transition between baroque and classical opera, Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714-1787) was, in his lifetime, both controversial and colourful. The documents portray a man of enormous physical energy, relish for good food and good company, and passion for his art. Patricia Howard draws on a variety of contemporary sources in an attempt to construct a portrait of one of the most interesting musicians of the eighteenth century. The basis of the book is the body of letters to and from Gluck. Also included are a wealth of factual documents and informal anecdotes, not easily accessible in the original German, French, or Italian, and almost none of which has ever been translated. The material has been arranged with the aim of providing readers with a lively, continuous narrative of Gluck's life, while at the same time indicating the principal locations of the published and unpublished sources
