Orfeo ed Euridice: In Concert

SUNDAY 10 FEBRUARY, 2019

A concert performance of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice with the Irish Baroque Orchestra

""

A concert version of Gluck’s great musical myth Orfeo ed Euridice, starring Sharon Carty (mezzo) and Sarah Power (soprano) with the Irish Baroque Orchestra. 

Presented by Irish National Opera in a co-production with United Fall, in partnership with Irish Baroque Orchestra.

Don’t miss out, book tickets now.

Christoph Willibald Von Gluck’s influential opera Orfeo ed Euridice is based on the myth of Orpheus, who is granted permission to travel to the underworld to rescue his wife Euridice on the condition that he not look at her until they are back on earth.

A story so weighted in tragedy, the power of the Orpheus myth lies in its balance between mortality and hope, transcendence and love. Orfeo ed Euridice is the most popular of Gluck’s work and features the famous aria “Che farò senza Euridice”. Peter Whelan conducts this concert performance of Gluck’s most favourite work with the Irish Baroque Orchestra and with Sharon Carty and Sarah Power performing the title roles joined by an ensemble of four singers.

This is the moment a star is born, I told myself as I sat breathlessly through mezzo soprano Sharon Carty’s sublime rendering of the aria Scherza infida.
