Review On Eurydice

Non-Registered Critics

Saturday’s performance emerged as a triumph — musically, visually and vocally. It features a sterling cast led by the lithe and endearing soprano, Danielle de Niese (as Eurydice); the robust baritone of Joshua Hopkins (as her music-obsessed boyfriend, Orpheus); counter-tenor, John Holiday (as Orpheus’s spirit double); Barry Banks, a cross between Lucifer and Harvey Weinstein (as Hades); with LA Opera veteran baritone Rod Gilfry as Eurydice’s father, a sort of rumpled mid-western advice-giving version of Polonius.
