Review On Eurydice

I’ve often groused about contemporary revivals of ancient Greek works that don’t include togas and how remakes often miss their mark. But this modern dress edition is right on target as – while it succeeds in retaining the theme and flavor of the myth that can be traced all the way back to sixth century B.C. Greece – composer Matthew Aucoin and librettist Sarah Ruhl’s work manages to re-imagine the age-old tale for 21st century audiences through the conventions of the operatic medium.
