Opera returns to the Barber as the University’s finest musicians present Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Iphigenia in Aulis, an adaption of Euripides’ classic Greek tragedy. His first foray in to opera for the Parisian stage proved fantastically popular and it is not difficult to see how it went on to capture the imagination of Richard Wagner. With a plot that twists and turns as the protagonist is torn between familial ties and duty, it remains as enduringly enchanting today and this will no doubt be yet another spectacular start to the University’s Summer Festival of Music.
