In its 41-year history, Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice has not been presented by Arizona Opera—until now. Orfeo ed Euridice is an Italian opera "based on the classic myth of a Greek hero's descent into the underworld to rescue his true love." Mezzo-soprano Katharine Goeldner performs the role of Orfeo and soprano Christine Brandes performs as Euridice. Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 21, and 2 p.m., Sunday, April 22, at Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave.
