Manfriani, pp. 60–71).

Peter Hall's 1982 production of Gluck's "Orfeo ed Euridice" at Glyndebourne was Dame Janet Baker's last appearance on the operatic stage. Read her autobiography, "Full Circle" for a touching description of what this production meant to her. Glyndebourne was also the stage where she first appeared in an opera-as Rosa in Smetana's "The Secret. I believe this role as Orfeo to be one of her most moving portrayals, and her two soprano colleagues, Elisabeth Speiser as Euridice and Elizabeth Gale as Amore lend beautiful musical support.

Gluck: Orfeo ed Euridice. 20 January 2012 - 3:30pm. Submitted by root admin. In the supporting roles, Elizabeth Gale is a sweet and affectingly uncomprehending Euridice and Elisabeth Speiser an attractive, though somewhat mature-sounding Amore. Raymond Leppard uses the 1859 Berlioz version of the score, but retains the Italian text. He also includes the final, celebratory ballet which is usually omitted. Under his masterly direction, the London Philharmonic Orchestra gives a marvellously vivid performance, urgent and atmospheric, but slower-paced and markedly less frenzied than is often the case. The Glyndebourne Chorus, directed by Jane Glover, is also on outstanding.
