Event Details

The classic tale of the trials of love: Orpheus (Orphée) has the chance to bring the beloved Euridice back from the dead. The catch? Orphée cannot look at her once, at the risk of losing her forever; can she manage it? The University of St Andrews Opera Society presents a new modern twist on Gluck’s version of this tragic story, with a brand-new translation of the 1774 French libretto by students from the University’s French Department. Come and witness the power of love, and the lengths we will go to for it!
