Orphée et Eurydice by Christoph Willibald Gluck( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gluck's tragedy of love lost, found and lost again has always lent itself to powerful and iconoclastic interpretations. Here we can see Orphée et Eurydice in a vital new light of authenticity and innovation at the hands of the Gluck specialist John Eliot Gardiner and the acclaimed American director Robert Wilson. Working with a star cast of some of the most eloquent singer-actors of our day, with Magdalena Kozená and Madeline Bender in the title roles, Wilson makes the most of the opera's balletic possibilities to embark on mesmerising voyage into Hades, and into the very depths of the plight of the two."--Conteneur

Based loosely on the German folktale underlying von Weber's opera Der Freischutz (1821), the production has many American twists, as one might safely assume with collaborators like Tom Waits and William Burroughs"--Robertwilson.com
