3 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in Italian and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tragedy makes for great opera. Opera is full of stories of unrequited love such as Romeo and Juliet, of jealousy and murder such as Otello, and of ultimate happiness ruined by premature death such as in La Traviata. But of all the tragic tales that inspired composers, one of the most effective and lasting is one inspired by Greek mythology - no, not Oliver Stone's tragic film adaptation of the story of Alexander the Great but rather the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. And it just so happens that that is the subject of today's Opera Easy," says host Natalie Choquette. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Orfeo ed Euridice by Christoph Willibald Gluck!
