One of Gluck’s most beloved works, this exquisite opera explores the power of music and love in our lives.
Premiered in 1762 for Empress Maria Theresa, it was the first of Gluck’s ‘reform’ operas, in which the complex plots of opera seriawere replaced with naturalness and simplicity in both the music and the drama. Its immediate popularity lasted for centuries and it became one of the most influential works for composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Wagner. Sung in Italian with English Subtitles
