In a col­lab­o­ra­tion with the cel­e­brated Jof­frey Bal­let, di­rec­tor-chore­og­ra­pher John Neumeier stages “Or­phee et Eury­dice From Lyric Opera of Chicago,” Christoph Wil­libald Gluck’s 18th-cen­tury op­er­atic treat­ment of a Greek myth. Neumeier weaves mu­sic and dance into a seam­less whole as he retells the story of how Or­pheus (Dmitry Kor­chak), an an­cient Greek mu­si­cian and poet, takes des­per­ate mea­sures af­ter his beloved wife, Euridice (An­dri­ana Chuch­man), dies. This co-pro­duc­tion with Los An­ge­les Opera and Staat­soper Ham­burg is per­formed un­der the baton of Harry Bicket.
