New Sus­sex Opera

Some peo­ple will go to hell and back for love. New Sus­sex Opera’s 40th sea­son opens with a new pro­duc­tion of Gluck’s Or­feo ed Euridice


THIS TALE OF LOVE, loss and de­vo­tion moves seam­lessly be­tween the world of mor­tals and the un­der­world, with its benign – and far-from-benign – spir­its. But un­like so many oper­atic love sto­ries, here love tri­umphs in the end. Wo­ven into a rich ta­pes­try of arias, cho­ruses and dances, you’ll hear mu­sic that might be sur­pris­ingly fa­mil­iar. Gluck’s in­no­va­tive ap­proach to oper­atic form stunned au­di­ences in 1762. With young pro­fes­sional soloists, New Sus­sex Opera Orches­tra and Cho­rus and an imag­i­na­tive stag­ing, this lat­est pro­duc­tion starts the 40th sea­son in style.
