Orpheus and Eurydice Lost Music: Exploring Literary Opera

    • Bücher

Opera was born during the Renaissance as an attempt to recreate the experience of an ancient Greek play as it would have been performed in the Theater of Dionysus in Athens. In this episode, Marc Eliot Stein and Lisa Geraghty talk about "Orfeo ed Euridice" by Christoph Willibald Gluck, which tells of a musician's descent into Hades to retrieve his wife from the dead. We also talk about Charlie Daniels Band, Arcade Fire, "Black Orpheus", Rainer Maria Rilke and Jacques Offenbach's "Orphee aux Enfers".
