Orpheus and Eurydice Opera

Opening night at Los Angeles Opera for Orpheus and Eurydice by Gluck was a magical experience. This early opera from the mid 1700’s is a transformational period in the growth of the opera art form. It was the first time the harpsichord was eliminated from the underscoring during the recitative. This beautiful production is presented in conjunction with the Joffrey Ballet. The choreography stunningly supports this Greek mythological story.  There is almost constant dancing during the 2 and 1/2 hour running time. Gorgeous music and singing make this a worthwhile trip to the Dorothy Chandler pavilion. Senior and full time student rush will provide you with deep discounts. Today tix is another way to go. The price range begins at $16.00 for heavenly balcony seats also. Enjoy.
