Gluck’s masterpiece is most famous for its immortal aria, “Che farò senza Euridice.” But it’s also a compelling and deeply personal story of how far one man will go to prove his devotion to his wife. The grief-stricken musician and poet Orfeo risks the terrifying depths of the Underworld to bring back his beloved Euridice alive. For decades, the title role was usually played by a mezzo-soprano, but Florida Grand Opera has cast a gifted countertenor, John Holiday, praised by Anthony Tommasini of The New York Times for his “bright, virile voice,” who will sing the role on March 18th and 23rd. Anthony Barrese, praised by Anne Midgette in The Washington Post for his “terrific conducting,” leads the performance. Florida Grand Opera offers Seattle Opera’s warmly received production of Orfeo, with Phillip Lienau’s dazzling sets and Heidi Zamora’s colorful costumes
