Gluck’s Orpheus and Eurydice at LA Opera

March 10-25

“Conductor James Conlon’s orchestra played Gluck’s eighteenth century music on their modern instruments and the result was magnificent. A conductor who specialized in performing in eighteenth century style on older or recreated instruments would have had a leaner sound, but Conlon’s meaty tones fit this combination of old and new music and dance perfectly.”
