Orpheus and Eurydice: From Ancient Greece to Modern Ballet/Opera. Maestro James Conlon, the Grammy-award winning music director of the LA Opera, traverses mythology, literature, and music to trace the fateful love of Orpheus, son of Apollo and Calliope, as the ancient Greek hero descends into the underworld to rescue his beloved wife Eurydice. Conlon also discusses the recent collaboration between the LA Opera and the Joffrey Ballet on a modern-day retelling of the timeless story, with Orpheus as a choreographer and Eurydice as his ballerina wife.
