FRSO Festival ends with a seldom-heard opera by Gluck

Magnus Lindberg may well compose an opera. He even has plans for one: “I know what I don’t want. I just need to know what I do.” We therefore thought it was a brilliant idea to end the festival bearing his name with a Late Baroque opera, Orfeo ed Euridice. Seldom performed, this opera by 18th-century Gluck is a veritable gem that, in its day, revolutionised early opera and turned it into a harmonious, dynamic drama.
