Gluck’s masterpiece is most famous for its immortal aria, “Che farò senza Euridice.” But it’s also a compelling and deeply personal story of how far one man will go to prove his devotion to his wife. The grief-stricken musician and poet Orfeo risks the terrifying depths of the Underworld to bring back his beloved Euridice alive. For years, the role of Orfeo was the specialty of mezzo-sopranos, but FGO has cast one of today’s most dazzling countertenors, Anthony Roth Costanzo, hailed by The New York Times as an “utterly riveting” performer.
Each program is accompanied by a pre-show lecture an hour before curtain with a talk-back session immediately following the performance.
