Orpheus And Eurydice A Dance-Opera Music by Gluck Choreography and Stage Direction by Pina Bausch With the Paris Opera Ballet Balthasar -Neumann Ensemble and Chorus, sung in German Subtitles in English, French and German Includes 36-page full-color booklet (in English, French and German) describing Orpheus and Eurydice and the life of Pina Bausch, who died on June 30, 2009 Orpheus and Eurydice is the first Blu-ray release of any choreography by the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch. Conceived as a dance-opera, and premiered in 1975, the roles of the principals: Orpheus, Eurydice, and Love, are each represented by singers and dancers. The story celebrates the power of music to charm the creatures of the Underworld and their god Hades into releasing the mortally-stricken Eurydice to the upper world and to her husband, Orpheus. Though the 18th century Gluck imagined a happy ending in which Love brings Eurydice and Orpheus together, Pina Bausch, more faithful to the Greek myth, ends with Eurydice’s second death. 104
