"An achingly beautiful dream of a inspired intertwining of ballet and opera" - Chicago Tribune In a modern take on a timeless story, a breathtaking new production by living legend John Neumeier showcases the virtuoso dancers of the Joffrey Ballet. Shattered from the sudden death of his beloved Eurydice, Orpheus descends into the underworld in a courageous effort to reunite with his muse. Gluck’s groundbreaking masterpiece, which bridges the musical worlds of Handel and Mozart with its ornate vocal lines and flowing melodies, forever changed the face of opera with its bold emphasis on dramatic clarity and emotional strength.
