Reviews & Ratings
Iphigénie, high priestess of Taurus, is tormented by dreams of her family’s bloody past and intimations of violence in the future. Will she accede to the barbaric King Thoas’ demands and murder her own brother? Can she survive in this world of bloodshed and fear? Gluck’s masterpiece, Iphigénie en Tauride, with its sweeping score and dramatic story is enjoying a renaissance at major opera houses around the world.
This company premiere features an outstanding cast led by soprano Patricia Racette, “the consummate singing actress” (Chicago Tribune). Hailed as the “greatest operatic artist of modern time” (The Guardian), world-renowned tenor Plácido Domingo sings Oreste, Iphigénie’s long-lost brother who is condemned to death. William Lacey returns to the podium to lead this powerful production from Oviedo, Spain by Emilio Sagi.
