Synopsis

Librettist Ranieri de' Calzabigi and composer Christoph Gluck co-crafted the opera Orfeo ed Eurydice, adapting the basic narrative from the mythical legend that recounts Orpheus's rescue of his bride, Eurydice, from the underworld. This filmed record of the 1982 production of Orfeo, as staged at The Glyndebourne Festival Opera, features a woman - the legendary Dame Janet Baker - in the male role of Orpheus, in a performance that many consider the pinnacle of her long and illustrious career. Elisabeth Baker co-stars as Eurydice; the production features musical accompaniment by The Glyndebourne Festival Chorus and The London Philharmonic Orchestra, as conducted by Raymond Leppard. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
