Summary
Iphigénie en Aulide is based on the classic Greek story of Iphigenia, whose father was ordered to offer her up as a human sacrifice to appease the gods. In Gluck's opera the gods have second thoughts, and Iphigénie is banished to Tauris, where 15 years later Iphigénie en Tauride begins. She is now Diana's high priestess, unaware of her family's tragic events withing the past 15 years. It is her job to sacrifice any strangers. Her brother Oreste and his friend Pylade are shipwrecked and Iphigénie spends the rest of the opera trying to avoid sacrificing them before Diana comes to her rescue
