Orfeo & Euridice
Scottish Opera Youth Company returns to The Beacon following the success of Dido and Aeneas in 2017.Based on the myth of Orpheus, Orfeo & Euridice tells the tale of one man’s determination to defy the gods and rescue his lover from Hades. But can he resist temptation long enough to save her?
Composer, Gluck sought to change the nature of opera and bring to it a ‘noble simplicity’.Orfeo & Euridice remains his most popular work, largely due to the sheer beauty of its music which is full of emotion: at one moment full of fury, the next clear and pure.
