Summary
Christoph Willibald Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice received its first performance in Vienna on 5 October 1762 and is widely regarded as the first of his great reform operas, creating a radical break with the fustian theatricality of the older Italian tradition that obliged singers to adopt a style of performance dictated by the emotions of a regular succession of da capo arias. Gluck had no time for the display of singers' voices as a virtuoso end in itself, but nor was he in favour of the idea of opera as literature set to music, as found in the continuo-based speech-like singing of secco recitatives. Gluck's accompanied recitatives draw on the full complement of strings, allowing the sung text and the emotions of the characters onstage to be reflected in the music and to be clarified by it. Gluck's aim was to take seriously once again the underlying drama of music theatre and to forge a meaningful link between the music and the developing action onstage
