Product Description

Filmed at the Baroque Theatre of Ceský Krumlov Castle

Orfeo Bejun Mehta
Euridice Eva Liebau
Amore Regula Mühlemann
Collegium 1704, Collegium Vocale 1704
Conductor Václav Luks
A Film by Ondrej Havelka

The Baroque Theatre of C eský Krumlov Castle provides an ideal setting for one of the most important operas in music history, Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice. Director Ondrej Havelka captures much more than a stage performance: combining period details with modern psychological interpretation he chooses a cinematic approach that literally takes us behind the scenes of this unique venue. Bejun Mehta, 'arguably the best countertenor in the world today' (Sueddeutsche Zeitung), lends credibility to the emotions tormenting Orfeo's heart. As his beloved Euridice, Austrian soprano Eva Liebau juggles joy and jealousy. Bringing comic relief to the work's dark tone is Regula Mühlemann as Amore, who cheerily sends mortals zigzagging on their way to life, love and, maybe, death. Under the baton of baroque specialist Václav Luks, the splendid soloists are supported by the Prague orchestra and vocal ensemble Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704. This is the perfect new release to celebrate Gluck's 300th anniversary in 2014!

Vaclav Luks and his excellent period-instrument players sustain the production's energy. --Opera, Jan'15

Loved the singing & the setting 7 Aug. 2014
By Dr Marion J. Milton - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The singing was marvelous , Orpheo had such stamina and a beautiful counter tenor voice . The music, dancing, staging and lighting. We're well suited to the piece and I loved seeing the inside of the cesky krumlov baroque theatre. I had visited the castle a couple of months ago but missed out on the theatre.
