See the tragic myth of Orpheus magically come to life as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs Christoph Wilibald Gluck's operatic masterpiece, "Orfeo ed Euridice". When the beautiful nymph Euridice dies on her wedding day, her husband Orfeo resolves to go and search for her in the underworld. Just as they are nearing the surface, however, Orfeo breaks the one rule imposed on him before the rescue and his love is taken from him once more. This first and most famous of Gluck's reform operas has been an audience favorite for over 200 years, loved for its powerful drama. Now, opera superstar David Daniels leads a brilliant cast of singers during this stunning debut at Atlanta Symphony Hall.
