Opéra-Théâtre de Metz Métropole

Overwhelmed by the death of his wife Eurydice, Orpheus manages by the force of his song to move the infernal powers, who then allow him to bring her back into the world of the living, on the condition that he does not look at her. “I lost my Eurydice” is one of the most famous tunes in the repertoire. Through this universal myth, Gluck delivers a sublime score that deeply translates human feelings and the power of love over death.
