In a timeless story drawn from mythology, Orpheus descends into the underworld to retrieve his lost Eurydice. But first he must tame the Furies and face Love’s challenge. Gluck’s groundbreaking opera, which bridges the musical worlds of Handel and Mozart with its ornate vocal lines and flowing melodies, forever changed the face of opera with its bold emphasis on dramatic clarity and emotional strength.

Director, choreographer and designer John Neumeier, a living legend in the dance world, creates a new production that showcases the virtuoso dancers of the Joffrey Ballet.

In French with projected English Translations.
