ALCESTE at Teatro Real, Madrid 2019

Opera in three acts, from the Libretto by Marie Francois-Louis Gand Le Blanc du Roullet, based on the original by Ranieri de Calzabigi about the work by Euripides Alcestis.

In Alceste, Gluck not only achieved a radically innovative score, he also gave dignity to women who were so often treated carelessly in the libertine 18th century. In his idealisation of the feminine figure, he turns to characters like Iphigenia and Alceste, prepared to sacrifice themselves instead of their consorts, taking their place among the noblest heroines of universal literature since Euripides.
