Orfeo ed Euridice

Author(s): Music by Christoph Willibald Gluck, text by Ranieri de’ Calzabigi
Company: New National Theatre Tokyo
Running time: 1h 36min approx

Orfeo is so consumed with grief at the death of his beloved Euridice that the gods allow him to lead her back from the underworld—if he will not look at her on the way. But who can resist looking at a loved one?

New National Theatre Tokyo has entrusted its new production to Japanese choreographer and dancer Saburo Teshigawara. Here, he oversees the staging, set, costumes and lighting, with Masato Suzuki conducting the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
