The Central Piedmont Music Department is excited to announce their Fall 2019 opera, “Orphee et Euridice!”
Gluck’s second adaptation of the Orpheus mythological legend took place in Paris, France in 1774. In our present day, the first version, which premiered in Vienna in 1692 is more often performed. Due to the additional beautiful vocal and dance music and the title role being performed by a full lyric tenor voice, Central Piedmont Opera has chosen to produce the Paris Version of this opera.
The presence of dance is especially strong in the Paris Version, and the additional music is stunning. Central Piedmont Opera is pleased to be collaborating with Central Piedmont Dance and Nouveau Süd to bring you this ‘feast for the senses’ known as “Orphée et Euridice.”
Performances are November 22nd and 23 at 7:30 p.m., and November 24 at 2:30 p.m., in Halton Theater, Central Campus. Central Piedmont students can attend FREE with a valid Central Piedmont student ID. For more information, visit tix.cpcc.edu or call the SunTrust Box Office at ext. 6534.
CPCC students receive a free ticket with a current ID. CPCC Staff/Faculty tickets available for $10. (Tickets available at the Box Office only with a valid ID). Single performance tickets are available beginning September 4. All seating is subject to availability.
