Filmed live in 2015 at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice.  Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Libretto by Ranieri Simone Francesco Maria de ‘Calzabigi, after Alceste by Euripides.

Opera in three acts with a running time of approximately 2 hours and 35 minutes.

Pier Luigi Pizzi’s new prestigious production of Alceste by Christoph Willibald Gluck to mark the three hundredth anniversary of the composer’s birth (Erasbach, Baveria 1714 – Vienna 1787).  Musical direction will be by Guillaume Tourniaire with Carmela Remigio as Alceste and Marlin Miller as Admeto.

An exponent of early Viennese classicism, Christoph Willibald Gluck played a decisive role in the reform and simplification of opera seria, which was suffering a period of decline in the eighteenth century. A key piece in this reform, together with the more famous Orfeo ed Euridice is Alceste, which portrays. The god is moved by this act of extreme devotion and allows the woman to return from the underworld.
