Collegium Vocale 1704
The Baroque Theatre of Ceský Krumlov Castle provides an ideal setting for one of the most important operas in music history, Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. Director Ondr¡ej 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!
