Christoph Gluck’s account of the Orpheus myth is said to be a revolutionary opera of the 18th century. In collaboration with Studio Wayne McGregor, the ENO brings this iconic opera to the London Coliseum and tickets for Orpheus and Eurydice are a must!
This part of the Orpheus myth follows a grief-stricken Orpheus, who is willing to go any lengths to be reunited with his one true love, and with permission from the gods, he ventures to rescue his wife from the underworld. However, there’s a catch in which Orpheus can’t look back at Eurydice or she’ll be lost to him forever.

Christoph Gluck is a Bohemian-Austrian composer of Italian and French opera and was a pioneer in opera in the latter half of the 18th century. Along with librettist Calzabigi, they wrote three reform operas, one of which was Orpheus and Eurydice. (The other two were: Alceste and Paride de Elena.) Gluck’s score is filled with uplifting melodies and rich orchestral writing which spans from Orpheus’ anguished outbursts to the death of his wife Eurydice, and through to the classical beauty of the ‘Dance of the Blessed Spirits’.

From the collaborators of Studio Wayne McGregor comes work from the multi-award-winning choreographer, Wayne McGregor, who showcases his continual curiosity and innovation. With 16 dancers from Company Wayne McGregor, he makes his ENO directional debut.

Returning to the ENO is distinguished mezzo Dame Sarah Connolly (Opera for All) as Orpheus and with company favourite Sarah Tynan (Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow) in the role of Eurydice. ENO Harewood Artist Soraya Mafi joins them in the role of Love.
You won’t want to miss out on this account of the Orpheus myth. Be sure to get your Orpheus and Eurydice tickets to be sure you catch the whole Orpheus season this autumn. Orpheus is prepared to go to the Underworld and back, but you don’t have to do that to secure your tickets for this milestone opera.
