Orfeo ed Eurydice


Just go already! I’ve seen—and told you to see—the Met’s Orfeo ed Eurydice at least three times before, and I highly recommend it. I keep going because I like it so much. If you don’t like Mark Morris, or don’t buy him in baroque, then maybe don’t go. But otherwise get to it.

Jamie Barton is this revival’s superb Orfeo, with an eternally youthful Hei-Kyung Hong as Eurydice and Hera Hyesang Park as Amor. Mark Wigglesworth conducts.
