About

Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714-1787), called the opera reformer of the 18th century, greatly influenced the development of music theatre in his time. In honour of his 300th birthday, Arthaus Musik releases this special Blu-ray filled with three prize-winning productions of his most popular operas: Alceste from Stuttgart, awarded “performance of the year” in 2006 by the magazine Opernwelt, Iphigénie en Tauride from Zurich, led by baroque specialist William Christie, and Harry Kupfer’s legendary production of Orfeo ed Euridice from the Royal Opera House Covent Garden with Jochen Kowalski in the title role, which won the Olivier Award.
