BWW Review: At the Met, EURYDICE Edges Out Orpheus for the Center of Attention in Premiere

BWW Review: At the Met, EURYDICE Edges Out Orpheus for the Center of Attention in Premiere

Talk about ‘spoiler alerts,’ there was a big one for me early in the opera, EURYDICE, by Matthew Aucoin to a libretto that he and Sarah Ruhl fashioned from her play of the same name, which had its Met premiere last night. Eurydice tells Orpheus “Don’t look at me,” which to me mirrored the scene at the end of the piece in the Underworld when Hades tells him that he can take her back to the land of the living if he doesn’t look back at her…which, of course, he does.
