Opera in the Heights says
Sung in Italian, this production uses an edition created for the opera's 1889 Milan revival, which brings together some of Gluck's most beloved tunes including "The Dance of the Blessed Spirits," (a favorite of the concert hall) and the iconic aria, "Che farò senza Euridice." Opera in the Heights offers a unique opportunity for both opera buffs and newcomers alike to see a magnificent and rarely-staged opera.

A whirlwind of tragedy, adventure and love, the opera is based on one of the oldest Greek myths about death, and the obsessive power of love which propels an unforgettable journey. Refusing to accept that his beloved is dead, Orpheus (Orfeo) strikes a bargain with the Gods to allow him to journey through the underworld, and retrieve her. The catch? He can't look at her until they are both safely back on earth.

What happens next? Come and see Opera in the Heights’ production with stage director Leslie Swackhamer and principal conductor Eiki Isomura leading the artistic charge, and you can find the answer.

Orfeo ed Euridice opens Friday, April 8 with three more performances, April 10, 14, and 16.
