About Orpheus and Eurydice

Orpheus and Eurydice was first produced in Vienna in 1762, and then in Paris in 1774 where it was called Orphee et Eurydice. In June 1860, the opera was produced in London at Covent Garden, following which it was staged again in 1885 in New York at Metropolitan Opera House in German. It was then performed in 1886 by the Academy of Music at the American Opera Company under director Theodore Thomas with a cast of Minnie Dilthey, Emma Juch and Helene Hastreiter.
Orpheus and Eurydice begins as Orpheus, the singer, stands surrounded by friends, mourning over the death of his wife Eurydice. The man later leaves for the woods and is seen wandering aimlessly, expressing his sorrow to the trees, stones and streams but nature can provides him no help. He then screams that he will reach for the Underworld to get his wife back, at which point Amore appears in front of him with the message that he may be taken to the underworld since the gods are moved by his remorse. But Amore lays before Orpheus a condition, which is that Orpheus must be able to get through to the hearts of the Underworld tyrants in order to reclaim Eurydice. Amore also warns the singer that on his way back from the depths of the dead world, Orpheus must not glance at Eurydice even once or she will be lost forever. Orpheus, thus full of hope once again, sets to rescue his love.
