First of selected excerpts from 'Orfeo ed Euridice' staged at Glyndebourne, 1982. In which we find the poet and singer, Orfeo, grieving over his young dead wife, at her tomb near a grove of cypresses and laurels, with shepherds and nymphs consoling him and laying wreaths of flowers and garlands of myrtle upon Euridice's tomb.

(Only selected scenes will be uploaded from this fine production. Rest will follow soon....)

The great British mezzo-soprano, Dame Janet Baker, sings the role of Orfeo with heartbreaking sincerity in this Glyndebourne staging (by Peter Hall). These performances were the singer's farewell to the operatic stage. Not to be missed !

Act 1, Scene 1 : 'Ah, se intorno a quest'urna funesta' (with Glyndebourne Festival Chorus)

---------

CORO
Ah! se intorno a quest'urna funesta,
Euridice, ombra bella t'aggiri,
odi i pianti, i lamenti, i sospiri
che dolenti si spargon per te.
Ed ascolta il tuo sposo infelice,
che piangendo ti chiama, e si lagna,
come quando la dolce compagna
tortorella amorosa perdé.

ORFEO
Basta, basta, o compagni: il vostro lutto
aggrava il mio. Spargete
purpurei fiori, inghirlandate il marmo,
partitevi da me: restar vogl'io
solo fra queste ombre funebri ed oscure
coll'empia compagnia di mie sventure.

CORO
Ah! se intorno a quest'urna funesta
Euridice, ombra bella, t'aggiri,
odi i pianti, i lamenti, i sospiri,
che dolenti si spargon per te.
