The Northeast Branch of the Seattle Public Library is having a free preview lecture of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Christoph Willibald Gluck's "Orpheus and Eurydice,"  presented by the Seattle Opera Education Department staff. from 6-7:30pm.

The information says:
Gluck’s sumptuous and exhilarating account of the legendary Greek hero’s descent into the underworld to rescue his true love changed the course of musical storytelling forever. With its perfectly crafted libretto and generous helping of music -- choral passages, ballets, duets and the hero’s famous lament -- Orpheus conveys a timeless message of love’s power to triumph over all.
The opera runs from February 25th to March 10th at the Seattle Opera House, and is in French with English subtitles.
