Love and music triumph, as the poet Orpheus defies the fires of Hades and charms the underworld king, freeing his beloved Euridice from death. Gluck's revolutionary orchestration influenced opera from Mozart to Wagner, and Orpheus' heart-wrenching lament at losing his beautiful wife is one of opera's most famous moments. Boston Baroque's semi-staged operas have been widely acclaimed.
