WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Widely renowned for fueling the resurrection of Handel's operas, NYC Opera continues its exploration of the music of the Baroque by presenting the New York premiere of Georg Philipp Telemann's 1726 opera Orpheus. Rediscovered only in the late 20th century, this creative score showcases the composer's progressive spirit and vivid imagination. The tri-lingual libretto features text drawn from operas by Handel and Lully and turns the traditional Orpheus myth on its head, focusing on the character Orasia, Queen of Thrace, whose jealousy brings about the destruction of Orpheus and Eurydice.
