Gluck reinvented opera with this great work based on the Classic legend of Orpheus, who attempts to sing his deceased wife Euridice back to life – and such is the beauty of his music that the powers of death relent and release her, until, as he escorts her up from Hades, he looks back once too often and appears to lose her forever – until Love intervenes, and returns her to life
