Charpentier: The Descent of Orpheus to the Underworld

Cambridge University Opera Society presents a fully staged production of Charpentier’s opera from 1686. This gem of the baroque era is largely unknown; however, through its moving plot based on the myth of Orpheus, this opera explores the depths of human emotion, from utter despair to purest joy.
