Gluck's opera is based on the Greek myth of Orpheus, who - unable to accept the death of his beloved wife Eurydice - descends into the Underworld to bring her back.
Moved by his pleas, the Spirits grant him permission, but there is one condition: while leading her out of Hades, he must not turn around and face her.
The timeless love story will be presented as a modern fairy-tale in a new, English translation and with a musical arrangement for piano, violin, flute and harp by musical director Andrew Charity.
