Orphée et Eurydice

Staged by acclaimed director-choreographer John Neumeier and produced in collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet

From Lyric Opera of Chicago & The Joffrey Ballet

The most enduringly popular opera by German composer Christoph Willibald Gluck, Orphée et Eurydice recounts the famous myth of Orpheus, the legendary Greek musician and poet who is grief-stricken over the untimely death of his wife, Eurydice. Staged by acclaimed director-choreographer John Neumeier and produced in collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet, Lyric Opera of Chicago’s new co-production with Los Angeles Opera and Staatsoper Hamburg seamlessly melds opera and dance. Lyric’s production stars tenor Dmitry Korchak as Orphée with sopranos Andriana Chuchman as Eurydice and Lauren Snouffer as Amour.

The Chicago Tribune deemed the production “triumphant” and “miraculously fresh and alive.” The production features Gluck’s reworking of the original German opera into a French-language production featuring ballet.
