The 69th University College Opera will be L'anima del filosofo, ossia Orfeo ed Euridice (The Soul of the Philosopher, or Orpheus and Euridice).
An opera in Italian in four acts by Joseph Haydn, the last he ever wrote.
The libretto, by Carlo Francesco Badini, is based on the myth of Orpheus and Euridice as told in Ovid's Metamorphoses.
Written for London in 1791 but not performed until 1954, the opera was never performed during Haydn's lifetime.
