The great musical myth. Orpheus rescues his wife Euridice from the Underworld. A revolutionary new mix of words, singing and dancing. And Gluck’s creative pursuit of beautiful simplicity and dramatic truth.

A stellar cast featuring Sharron Carty (Orfeo-mezzo soprano), Sarah Power (Euridice- soprano) and Emma Nash (Amore- soprano) are directed by Emma Martin (United Fall) and conducted by IBO Artistic Director, Peter Whelan.

Presented by Irish National Opera,
in association with Galway International Arts Festival.
A co-production with United Fall, in partnership with Irish Baroque Orchestra.
