Gluck’s Orphée et Euridice
Filmed live at the Teatro alla Scala in Milano. Sung in French with English subtitles.
Juan Diego Flórez dazzled audiences and critics alike when he played the virtuoso role of Orphée in La Scala’s first ever staging of Gluck’s opera in its French version: “Juan Diego Flórez delivered a lesson in style. His tone is darker and his projection more self-effacing than in the past, but class is permanent. His agility and legato are utterly thrilling. The ovations were never-ending.” (Corriere della sera) Also starring Christiane Karg and Fatma Said under the baton of Michele Mariotti.
