    This beautiful but little-known opera tells the ancient legend of Orpheus and Euridice, where Orpheus must rescue Euridice from Pluton, the God of the Underworld, charming him with music after she dies at their marriage celebrations. Encompassing lively Baroque dances as well as sumptuous arias, Orpheus attempts to rescue his beloved in a work that explores a wide range of human emotions, from joy and love, to the darkest depths of grief and despair, in only an hour.
