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.
11, 12, 18, 19 Nov at Barcombe, Eastbourne, Kemp Town and Lewes
