Opting for the French-language version of Orpheus, David Alagna was faced with the task of achieving an appropriately subtle adaptation. In a plot transposed to the present day, Eurydice dies in a car accident on the day of her wedding and Orpheus's quest for his beloved is a dream beginning and ending at the cemetery. No happy ending in this interpretation, but a new approach to characterisation: Amore, sung by a baritone, becomes a funeral parlour employee and Orpheus' guide. Orpheus, of course, loses his loved one forever by turning to look back. World famous tenor Roberto Alagna throws himself body and soul into this production. His incredible vitality, flawless timbre and diction make him a great Orpheus. His partner, young Italian soprano Serena Gamberoni, is simply stunning as Eurydice, while French baritone Marc Barrard is suitably terrifying as the guide to the Underworld. The orchestra is conducted by Giampaolo Bisanti, who masterfully brings out all Gluck's poetry, romantic melancholy and depth.

Orfeo ed Euridice (1762) represents the first of a series of operatic successes by the German composer Christoph Willibald Ritter von Gluck (1714-1787). It is his best-known opera and his greatest reform work (first performed in Vienna on 5 October 1762). Gluck broke every courtly convention governing the operatic art form of the time. He strove for naturalness and simplicity in both subject and music. Gluck liberated opera from its rigid confines, refrained from the pointless embellishment of arias, and replaced the recitativo secco with orchestral recitatives or recitativo accompagnato, creating through-composed forms of unprecedented drama. He also gave lyricism a greater significance in relation to the music. Gluck's importance in opera's overall history is matched only by Claudio Monteverdi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Richard Wagner…

Iphigénie en Tauride draws all of Gluck’s opera reforms to their natural conclusion and a work of great power and beauty is the result. Iphigénie en Tauride is Gluck's most dramatically involving work. It is about familial love and deep friendship, but the waters run deep, and noble aims of sacrifice, duty and protection are played out within the taut drama. Containing much of Gluck's best music.

I made my first acquaintance with “Armide” via the Minkowski recording when I was in the middle of a project exploring all the operatic treatments of that sorceress’ story I could find. Gluck’s version, set to essentially the same text as the earlier Lully opera (minus the prologue) was the great surprise of the project, far surpassing the various works of Haydn, Cimarosa and Vivaldi that treated Armida’s story or offered comical send-ups of it, with Gluck’s greater vigor and lyricism surpassing the austere older style of Lully’s setting.

Roberto Alagna offers the album of a “re-birth”. It is born from his happiness to become a father for the second time and from the deepest feelings that his little Malèna’s coming into the world revived in him. The album is the fruit of what she inspired to him: a strong desire to give as one gives life, to pass on and share.

Ambassadeur de l'art lyrique français, Roberto Alagna a révolutionné la façon de chanter l'opéra. Il emmène le spectateur au Metropolitan Opera de New York et à l'Opéra Garnier de Paris, où il se produisait en 2015 pour la première fois de sa carrière. Si le parcours artistique de cet enfant de banlieue devenu star internationale est assez connu, son personnage intime l'est beaucoup moins. Construit autour de grands airs d'opéra et des témoignages de nombreux intervenants du monde du spectacle et de la télévision, ce documentaire permet de découvrir un autre visage du célèbre chanteur lyrique.

Gluck‘s wonderful but neglected 1774 opera Iphigénie en Tauride, inspired by the Greek legend, is treated with forceful and convincing simplicity in Klaus Guth‘s revolutionary production staged at the Zurich Opera House. The psychological drama in a tense atmosphere of fears and traumas is underlined by Guth‘s use of huge masks and enclosed spaces. Conductor William Christie and his typically transparent but never cold orchestral sound perfectly match the descriptive elements in Gluck’s score, while the Armenian mezzosoprano Juliette Galstian as a fabulously good Iphigénie, the leading American opera baritone Rodney Gilfry as Oreste and the deceased South African tenor Deon van der Walt as Pylade head a superb cast.
