Christoph Willibald Von Gluck’s most influential opera Orfeo ed Euridice comes to VISUAL this Valentines weekend.
Directed and choreographed by Carlow native Emma Martin (artistic director of Carlow based dance company United Fall). This major new production tells the story of Orpheus, a Greek mythological figure who is granted permission to travel to the underworld to rescue his wife Euridice on the condition that he not look at her until they are back on earth.
Orfeo ed Euridice is a powerful mix of music, song, dance and imagery. The power of the Orpheus story lies in its balance between mortality and hope, transcendence and love.
“It's a triumph for all” Sunday Independent
“An opera of intense, crisp energy ★★★★” The Irish Times
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
Irish National Opera and United Fall are funded by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon
