Orpheus descends into Hell on a journey to the extremes of human emotion to reclaim his beloved Eurydice. The poignancy of bereavement is threaded through Gluck's version of the Orpheus legend, but love triumphs over death and the opera ends with a life-affirming hymn of joy. Revival. This production contains some nudity.
