Opera North: Orfeo Ed Euridice at The Lowry, Salford, 18 November 2022, from £15.00 - Book now

The second of three unmissable Opera North events at The Lowry this November is a dramatic concert performance of Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Orfeo Ed Euridice – a timeless love story for which Gluck reserved some of his finest arias, including Orfeo’s heart-breaking cry for his lost love Che farò senza Euridice. Overflowing with hope, desire, and the agony of heartbreak, this pioneering masterpiece will cut straight to the heart in this stripped-back performance, elevating the emotional power of the music and the splendour of the chorus and orchestra.

The beauty and directness of the music pierces the heart throughout: in the terror of Orfeo’s encounter with the Furies; in the tenderness of the pastoral scenes; and, above all, in Orfeo’s celebrated lament for his lost love, Che farò senza Euridice? (What is life without Euridice?).

Soloists Alice Coote (Orfeo), Fflur Wyn (Euridice) and Daisy Brown (Amor) join the Orchestra of Opera North under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Antony Hermus, in Gluck’s reworking of the Orpheus myth.
