Opera Boot Camp Part Two: Orpheus and Eurydice

Saturday, March 05, 2022 1:00 PM

Where and when did opera come from, and how have Greek myths been adapted and transformed over time? The second lecture will chronologically trace how Greek myths have been adapted by putting them in their historical context, and comparing and contrasting performances. Beginning with Orpheus and Eurydice which inspired the earliest opera still regularly performed, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo (1607), we will trace how this myth has been musically and textually adapted by Gluck (1762), Offenbach (1858) and Aucoin (2020).
