Based on the myth of Orpheus, Orphée et Euridice is of the genre azione teatrale, meaning an opera on a mythological subject with choruses and dancing.

Juan Diego Flórez dazzled audienced and critics alike when he played the virtuoso role of Orphée in La Scala’s first ever staging of Gluck’s opera in its French version: “Juan Diego Flórez delivered a lesson in style. His tone is darker and his projection more self-effacing than in the past, but class is permanent. His agility and legato are utterly thrilling. The ovations were never-ending.” (Corriere della sera)
